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.

“I do think that it would be ideal for anybody leading a firm to try and find a Manchin person. But that’s interesting that there aren’t more,” the lobbyist added.

He's a Rodent and the West Virginians were idiots for returning his Rodent behind back to the Senate in 2018.   

He'll remain a Rodent.  Even if he switched parties and become a RINO, he's a Rodent at heart and he can never be trusted by real Americans.   Right now he's selling his vote for favors, and generally he's being discounted by the treasons of Mittens, Murky, Sassy and Collins, anyway.

The best thing the people of WV can do for themselves is to vote Manchin out in 2024 and replace him with an American from their own communities.  They should be tired of their DC hack now that the Rodents have won their coup and shut down coal again.

The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

If we had someone running against Manchin, we'd vote for him or her.

Nonsense.  Among Romney, Collins, Murkowski and Sasse, there are plenty of RINOS to cover for votes that could be problematic for WV voters.  Chasing his vote is a fool's errand.
