Manchin Well-Placed With New Congress
Sen. Joe Manchin has always been a common-sense politician who regularly puts the best interests of his state and the nation above that of his party. With the new, 50-50 split in the U.S. Senate, the West Virginia Democrat is well-positioned to be the political wildcard that helps re-institute compromise and debate within the halls of Congress.
Manchin, along with a handful of other senators, will be key in ensuring the new Senate power dynamic doesn’t lead to more division and anger in the country. We’ve seen too much of that recently.
We call on Manchin to continue doing what he’s always done by supporting issues based upon what’s best for the nation, and not just his party.
