Manchin bankrolled by out-of-state donors, just 1% of individual campaign donations are from West Virginians
Sen. Manchin backs the Inflation Reduction Act, which would raise taxes slightly and bolster IRS enforcement
By Thomas Phippen | Fox News

    Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin raised only a fraction of his campaign funds from voters in his home state, according to a Fox News Digital analysis, while out-of-state contributions and corporate donations make up the bulk of his fundraising.

Manchin, who shocked Washington last week after announcing an agreement to advance a green energy and pharmaceutical spending bill called the Inflation Reduction Act, received approximately $6.1 million from individual donors who gave more than $200 in aggregate to his campaign between January 2021 and June 30, 2022, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) filings.

Of that total, only about $65,000 donations came from individuals residing in West Virginia, while over $6 million came from individuals in other states. Manchin also received around $176,000 in small dollar donations, but it's unclear how much of that came from individuals in West Virginia since campaigns are not required to report donor information on contributions under $200.

Manchin is not up for re-election until 2024 — and he has not announced whether he will seek another term in the Senate. Manchin's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is true of many Dem politicians in WV. The only locals who contribute to Dems are unions and personal injury lawyers.
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,
