Sen. Manchin's campaign bankrolled by green energy, fossil fuel groups
Sen. Manchin's Inflation Reduction Act includes massive climate spending
By Thomas Phippen | Fox News

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., has taken millions in donations from oil, gas and coal industry groups over the years, but he also brings in donations from green energy organizations and companies, according to his Federal Election Commission filings.

Manchin brought in over $1.1 million in donations from political action committees and companies between January 2021 and June 2022, a small part of his total haul of over $7 million during that time period. Most of the donations from corporate PACs and other organizations come from the fossil fuel and pharmaceutical industries, but Manchin has also received thousands of dollars in donations from green and renewable energy groups.

Groups like PACs associated with West Virginia-based solar and wind energy company Clearway Energy Group, Apex Clean Energy, based in Charlottesville, Virginia, EDF Renewables, and EDP Renewables, have contributed to Manchin's campaign in the past year and a half.

Manchin is not up for re-election until 2024, and he has not announced whether he plans to seek another term in the Senate. Fox News Digital reached out to Manchin's office, but it did not provide a statement.
