West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin -- a key Democratic holdout over efforts to pass federal voting rights legislation -- is expected to head to Texas on Friday for a fundraiser with a host committee that includes several wealthy Republican donors.

For anyone who was still wondering where Senator Manchin falls in the political spectrum. The fascism is creeping into our democracy through every crack.

The Democratic Party should run a candidate against Manchin with virtually unlimited funds to finally destroy that piece of filth. Probably effectiveness should be the primary issue directed at him. Has he saved King Coal? No he has not and that should once and for all destroy his career of evil. Bumper stickers everywhere saying "Manchin is a Failure" should blanket the state.

I'm will remind you that Manchin voter FOR the American Rescue Plan and is on-board with the two-track infrastructure plan. He is likely the only Democrat who could hold that seat in WV, where Dotard won by about 25 points. He offered his own voting rights bill that Stacy Abrams approves of, it would solve a lot of what the state GQP traitors are doing, why Dems haven't pushed that forward is beyond me.

Also, Biden judicial appointments are reportedly moving at a faster clip than did Dotard's. The judges, the diverse cabinet, the ARP, none of that would be possible without Manchin. I too am frustrated by his intransigence over the filibuster but if it's him or a Republicon, I choose Manchin.

" I too am frustrated by his intransigence over the filibuster ... "

It's not just Manchin. He's providing cover for several other Dems who do not want to see the filibuster destroyed.

I think if Dems pushed the Manchin voting compromise, and the GQP continue to oppose a federal solution to state farkery because these new laws will help the GQP win back the House and maybe the Senate, he would see his way clean to approve a carve out for civil rights legislation, the way Moscow Mitch did for unqualified, partisan hack judges.

I have a bad feeling that the dems will run Manchin for president in 2024 picking up tons of republican voters and shifting their party further right in the process.

If anyone had any doubt about the Manchurian Senator before...

#8 Manchin would run as a republican long before running
as a democrat for POTUS. Problem no. 1, he wouldn't get
many democrat votes! He is truly a traitor to the Democratic
Party, and a Sellout to the Fossil Fuel Industry. He is
a relic, a fossil, and in need of replacement.

I live in WV. And I haven't voted for him in the last
2 elections. I would rather have a republican (as much as
it hurts me to say so) rather than that P.O.S. as a Senator.
At least w the republican that sort of behavior is expected.

#11, If the national Democratic party leadership thought they had a chance with Manchin they'd support him. They supported Hillary, a candidate so repulsive that even Donald Trump beat her, didn't they? The Dems are already a center-right party, Manchin's policies wouldn't shift the party much at all, but the disaffected moderate R's that might come on board to support Manchin and get away from the clusterf--k the Republican party has become could.

Only after Faux Snooze convinced all the "deplorables" that she was the worst thing since Hitler (because "her emails"). Comey didn't help, either.

Yeah, and QCP, as much as you Rethugs love to dis Obama and the Clintons,
try living in the present, that's practically ancient history as fast as
things are moving today...

Oh THAT'S RIGHT, it's all the Right has got!

Not like they have any policy ideas, except for make sure the
rich get richer, and, don't let the rich pay any taxes, and
guns, guns, guns, as far as the eyes can see...

Did I leave any of their policies out?

Wow, you couldn't have missed the mark more if you tried #15. I'm no conservative much less a republican. Clinton was a terrible candidate and we suffered 4 years of Trump because the Dems ran her anyway. If you think they'd have qualms about running Manchin or anyone else they thought might win you're a fool.

Speaking of evil and Texas and the GOP and GOP wannabes (Manchin).
When you're evil and you OWN IT...
