If West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin decided to switch party’s and become a Republican, it would be a big deal. And it wouldn’t be that big of a stretch, either, considering the man is a blue-dog Democrat and often votes with the GOP.
Currently, there are 50 Republican Senators and 48 Democrats. Two Senators are Independent but they side with the left. Therefore, voting generally comes to a 50/50 tie – but Kamala Harris casts the deciding vote. Unless…
Unless Manchin takes a hard right turn.
From Fox News:
McConnell made his latest pitch to Manchin while speaking to conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt, who asked the top Senate Republican if he had talked to the Democratic senator on if he would take the next exit into the GOP.
McConnell noted, “Well, you know, as I’ve said the last couple of days, I’ve had this conversation with him off and on for a couple of years.”
Let’s go, Joe. Come to the light!
