Everybody wants Joe Manchin
By Alex Gangitano - 02/21/21 10:25 AM EST

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is the most sought after swing vote in the 50-50 Senate, and a popular target for every interest group in Washington seeking his support on legislation.

He's also a tough target, given that everyone in town wants a few minutes with the senator seen as the make-or-break vote on many bills and nominees.

“He’s a really hard dude to lobby and right now. There’s just a line from here to Timbuktu of people waiting to have him save their cause or company or issues. It makes him a very challenging guy to lobby as a result,” one Democratic lobbyist said.

Lobbying firms are now trying to make up for lost time by scrambling to connect with Manchin more than a month after the Georgia Senate runoffs tipped the balance of power to Democrats.
