    Sen. John Fetterman is predicting that fellow Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin is unlikely to remain in the Senate past the end of his term in January 2025. The Pennsylvania Democrat made the remark during an interview with the Washington Post, taking a swipe at his West Virginia colleague over his efforts to reinstate the Senate's dress code in September. "At first I was really kind of angry [at Manchin]," Fetterman told the Post. "And then I realized, well, he's not going to be around much longer and I'm going to get his parking space."

    Senate Energy Committee Chair Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) blasted the Biden administration’s new guidance on “foreign entities of concern” (FEOCs) ineligible for the Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) electric vehicle tax credits, calling them contradictory to the text of the landmark climate law. Specifically, Manchin accused the administration of seeking “workarounds” to the IRA’s restrictions on Chinese battery components. The guidance released Friday lays out rules for what makes a company an FEOC, including disqualifying connections to nations including North Korea, China, Iran and Russia. Manchin specifically took issue with provisions that make exceptions for certain trace critical minerals, which the Treasury...

    Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) potential presidential bid may not just spoil the Senate Democrats’ chances of keeping the majority; many Democrats now worry that it may spoil the election in favor of former President Donald Trump. “I think it would be very, very unfortunate if Joe Manchin decided to do that,” Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) said of Manchin’s possible presidential bid. “I know he’s a supporter of President Biden and has been an important person here in the U.S. Senate in terms of getting things done. And he knows that if he were to step in [to the race] that...

    During an interview with NBC News on Wednesday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) argued that if the Build Back Better legislation President Joe Biden and Senate Democrats pushed had passed the way it was “it would have basically thrown us into a recession, if not a deep depression.” “Meet the Press” host Kristen Welker asked, “Let’s talk about some of the legislation that you and the President and the Congress passed. The Inflation Reduction Act, the bipartisan infrastructure law, CHIPS, the gun safety law, do you feel…like you have a role in helping the President talk about some of this bipartisan...

Are you seriously contemplating a run for the White House?” Manchin said, “Here’s is what i’m seriously contemplating. I’ve said this clearly, people say, are you going to run? I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure, and immobilize the...

    Outgoing Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is putting out feelers about a late run for the White House and may sway voters from both major parties if he decides to get into the race, veteran campaign watchers told The Post Friday. The 76-year-old moderate Democrat announced Thursday he would not be seeking re-election to the Senate, and would instead embark on a tour of the US “to see if there is an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together.” The vague rhetoric and Manchin’s previous refusal to rule out running for higher office has set...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that in order to convince people to support Ukraine funding “Democrats have to come to grips that we have to close that border down.” And urged President Joe Biden to declare a national emergency the way former President Trump did “and shut it down tight.” Manchin also stated that “asylum basically should be put on hiatus for six months or so until we can get an immigration policy that works for our country and also gives people the chance to come here the right way to take care...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said that an open Democratic primary would make President Biden a “stronger candidate.” When MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough asked Manchin on “Morning Joe” if Biden was the “best choice” to beat former President Trump, he said that he didn’t know “who else was out there.” He suggested that an open primary could benefit the sitting president, saying that he could learn from his opponents. “I’ve always been scared, because I’ve always never been unopposed,” he said. “And that was always good. You know, let me tell you something, I’ve learned from every race I was ever in....

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said over the weekend that he will make a decision about whether he is going to launch a third party run for president within the next three months. Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday,” Manchin asked: “Why not have options? People aren’t satisfied right now.” “A lot of people like you as an option. And you’ve said, once you make a decision, a target will be on your back,” Bream said. “So you’re waiting till the right time. But the fact is, the calendar is now going to start working against you....

    The shorts were short-lived. The Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed a bill that requires members to follow a dress code that will include a coat, tie, and slacks for men, ending controversy triggered over Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman displaying his casual style on the floor. “Though we’ve never had an official dress code, the events over the past week have made us all feel as though formalizing one is the right path forward,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement. “I deeply appreciate Senator Fetterman working with me to come to an agreement that we all find acceptable,...

    The great sartorial scandal over John Fetterman's signature hoodie-and-shorts has now come to a close after the Senate unanimously passed a resolution enacting a formal dress code. The resolution, brought forth by fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, W. Va., passed without a formal vote by unanimous consent and clarified that the Senate floor would have a formal dress code. Hours earlier, Fetterman had already announced he would wear a suit and tie while speaking or presiding over the Senate floor. Fetterman, like others, could still wear his trademark garb and vote from the cloak room on the edge of the...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said during the Texas Tribune Festival this week that it would be a danger to reelect former President Donald Trump and that the Republican Party is sliding towards an “autocracy.” Manchin spoke with Evan Smith, the cofounder and senior adviser for the Texas Tribune, about why he has not flirted with becoming a Republican as he continues to ponder if he should run for reelection or run for president as an independent. After giving his critique of the Democrat party, he said that he has many dear friends in the Republican Party; however, he lamented the...

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer confirmed this week that senators, but not their staffers or reporters, would no longer be subject to dress requirements. The move appeared to accommodate Pennsylvania Democratic Sen. John Fetterman, who prefers to dress in athletic shorts and a hoodie.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) explored creating a new political party with fellow centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), according to an excerpt released Wednesday in Romney’s forthcoming biography. “They’d talked about the prospect before, but it was always hypothetical. Now Romney wanted to make it real,” the book excerpt reads. “His goal for the yet-unnamed party … would be to promote the kind of centrist policies he’d worked on with Manchin in the Senate.” Romney’s plans for the party, according to the biography excerpt, would not be to support a separate candidate, but to “pledge support to the candidate who came...

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that while he thinks there are some positives from the Inflation Reduction Act, the Biden administration is “dispersing more out and rewarding areas where we are still dependent on unreliable supply chains.” Manchin stated, [relevant remarks begin around 3:05] “The IRA bill was the only one that was done in a partisan way, because of the laws that we have here and the rules of how we conduct ourselves. But I can assure you, writing that energy portion, I was concerned about energy security. We’re...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) on Wednesday said he will keep up his battle against the Biden administration and officials who seek to “undermine” the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) as part of their “radical climate agenda” on the first anniversary of it being signed into law. The West Virginia moderate, in a lengthy statement on the anniversary of the IRA being signed into law, praised parts of the legislation, which he helped author. Manchin lauded the IRA as “one of the most historic pieces of legislation passed in decades,” especially for middle- and working-class families. He also hailed its work to...
