    Joe Manchin is considering challenging Jim Justice in 2020 for West Virginia governor, telling Politico that he's "thinking about" running for the "best job in the world." Manchin told Politico he will make a decision this fall. "I don't think there's any hurry at all," Manchin said. The Democratic senator served as West Virginia's governor from 2005-2010. He won a special election in 2010 to serve the remainder of Robert C. Byrd's term in the Senate, following his death in June of that year. Manchin defeated Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by 3 percentage points in 2018 in his bid for...

    President Donald Trump lit into the U.S. intelligence community on Wednesday, telling his intel chiefs to "go back to school" just one day after they publicly contradicted him on several of his foreign policy priorities. "The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran," Trump wrote on Twitter. "They are wrong! When I became President Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond. Since ending the terrible Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict." He continued, "They are testing Rockets...

    West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin insists he’s a pro-life Democrat. But when is a pro-life Democrat not really a pro-life Democrat? When it’s Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia — who was caught posing for a picture with a group of Planned Parenthood abortion activists.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Various reports indicate President Donald Trump will return to West Virginia before the Nov. 6 General Election to stump for state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in his run for U.S. Senate. According to a Reuters report, Trump will go on an 8-state blitz beginning next Wednesday including campaign stops in West Virginia, Florida, Missouri, Indiana, Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee. Morrisey, who has trailed U.S. Senator Joe Manchin in most of the major polls, predicted during an appearance on MetroNews “Talkline” earlier this week that Trump would return. Trump visited Wheeling Sept. 29. “A vote for Patrick...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) leads West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by a small margin, according to a poll released Tuesday. Sen. Manchin leads Morrisey by four points—49 to 45 percent—in the heated West Virginia race. Thirty-six percent of West Virginia voters said they will “definitely” vote for Manchin, 11 percent will probably vote for the West Virginia Democrat, and two percent are leaning towards voting for him. In contrast, 36 percent said they will definitely vote for Morrisey, eight percent will probably vote for the AG, and one percent lean towards voting for the West Virginia Republican. Three percent...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/09/2018 | Robert Arvay
    Do liberal politicians really advocate socialism? Do they truly condemn due process? Are they sincerely committed to abortion? If so, can they be persuaded to see the light? Indeed, many of them already have seen it. Every member of Congress, of either party, is well aware of Venezuela's socialist disaster. All of them favor due process, at least for themselves, if ever falsely accused. And most of them (or at least those who have any knowledge) recognize that partial-birth abortions are barbaric. They are already persuaded, maybe with the exception of a handful of truly demented members. Then why do...

    All that is left is to vote now that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has enough votes for confirmation thanks to Senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin announcing their votes for his nomination this afternoon. Collins announced Friday she will vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, all but guaranteeing he will become the court’s newest justice. “I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh,” she said at the end of a long speech blasting the character assassination campaign against Kavanaugh. She said the contentious Kavanaugh confirmation hearings meant that the Senate had reached “rock bottom.” She said that Kavanaugh should be...

    MoveOn, a progressive outside group, said on Friday that it is cutting support for Democrats in two key Senate races because they are supporting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "We're cancelling a planned six-figure digital video ad expenditure for Phil Bredesen in Tennessee due to his Kavanaugh position," the group said in a tweet. They added that "similarly [we] will be pulling all planned campaigning on behalf of Joe Manchin in West Virginia if he votes yes. Kavanaugh is unfit for the Court." Manchin became the only Senate Democrat to say he would vote for Kavanaugh on Friday, calling him...

    Morrisey called Manchin’s announcement a “craven political calculation” to salvage his political career. Manchin announced his support for Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s high court pick, minutes after Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins said she would vote to confirm the judge. . . . “When it matters most, Joe Manchin is with Hillary Clinton for President, Chuck Schumer and Obama for gun control, and is voting with Nancy Pelosi for amnesty for illegal immigrants,” Morrisey said.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), the lone Democrat who will vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confronted by angry protesters outside his office after announcing his position. Manchin’s answers to reporters justifying his position was drowned out by a group of women protesters chanting at him “Look at us!” and “shame!” Manchin looked uncomfortable as he tried to hear reporters questions over the angry crowd. Running for re-election in a state President Trump won by double digits, Manchin is considered a vulnerable Democrat. Trump has endorsed state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) and has campaigned for him, despite Manchin...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.), a potential swing vote in Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, was confronted by a protestor who said she was a victim of sexual assault and demanded to know how he would vote. “I don’t understand how you can’t look me in the eye,” the protestor said, to which Manchin can be heard responding “I can,” in a video recorded by ABC News. “Why are you going to vote yes on this,” the protestor asked Manchin. Manchin has so far not indicated how he would vote. “How do you know how I’m going to vote,” Manchin...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) signaled in an interview published Thursday that decades-old sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh will not play a major role in his vote on the judge’s Supreme Court confirmation. Manchin, a key Democrat swing vote, lamented the Senate Judiciary Committee’s handling of its investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh, describing the previous few weeks as “horrible” and a “circus.” “I am looking at the gentleman as an adult from 22 to 53, thirty-one years of professional service,” Manchin told Al-Jazeera. “I am looking at him as a father. As a person in a community, how he interacts...

    The Week ^ | October 4, 2018 | Brendan Morrow
    Brett Kavanaugh may have the support of at least one Democratic senator. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) now seems to be leaning towards voting "yes" on Kavanaugh, according to a new report from Politico, which also says Manchin "certainly is gettable" for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). Kavanaugh needs at least 50 votes to be confirmed (Vice President Mike Pence would break the tie), and since there are 51 Republicans in the Senate, a "yes" vote from Manchin could make up for a "no" vote from another swing senator like Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) or Susan Collins (R-Maine). President Trump clearly...

    Senate Democrats up for reelection this year in deep-red states face a nightmare decision on how to handle Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Vulnerable Democrats are hoping Republicans will force him to withdraw his nomination, allowing them to avoid politically divisive votes. The Democrats in the toughest position are Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.). Heitkamp and Manchin are undecided, and both are seeking another six-year term in states that Trump won by double digits in 2016. Donnelly is in much the same boat but said on Friday that he would vote ‘no’ on Kavanaugh....

    West Virginia residents pressed Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin this weekend about whether he would vote in favor of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. At the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival parade in Milton on Sunday, the senator marched alongside voters who asked him one after the other if he planned on voting or urged him to vote for Kavanaugh. Manchin would only say that he would have a final answer to those questions by the end of the week. One parade-goer continually shouted Kavanaugh’s name, and Manchin would only say, “Thank you.” Another yelled out, “Vote Kavanaugh!” and Manchin responded,...

    President Trump went after Democrats Saturday night at a rally in West Virginia, a state whose Democratic senator could be a crucial swing vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Mr. Trump targeted West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, calling him "Washington Liberal Joe" and linking him to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters. If Democrats are elected, Mr. Trump said, "you'll have Venezuela, Big Version." Manchin is one of the Senate's most vulnerable Demoracts up for re-election this year. Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, meaning that they can only afford to lose one...

    With the Senate Judiciary Committee holding a vote at 9:30 A.M. tomorrow, a Senate insider has told Townhall that Kavanaugh has the votes to make it out of committee and the votes to be confirmed on the floor for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Sens. Flake (R-AZ), Collins (R-ME), Murkowski (R-AK), and Manchin (D-WV) are expected to vote in favor of Kavanaugh. All the Republicans are voting yes. Also, in the rumor mill, several Democrats may break ranks and back Kavanaugh. That’s the ball game, folks. It was an intense and hellacious day at the Senate Judiciary Committee....
