Phony Joe Manchin has been able to fool the people in West Virginia for over ten years now, as being a “moderate” Democrat. Manchin is the clown who took over the Senate seat when KKK Robert Byrd kicked the bucket. But ever since Manchin voted for the communist “green new deal” bill and go screwed out of a pipeline, his poll numbers in the state have been in the crapper. Now, he may really be in trouble in 2024 as governor Jim Justice is likely to announce a run for the Senate seat in the coming weeks.
Bye bye phony baloney Joey.
The most competitive races will be the three “toss-up” seats that give the Republicans the best shot at winning and taking over the Senate. Ohio, Arizona, and West Virginia are all held by Democratic incumbents — Sherrod Brown, Kyrsten Sinema, and Joe Manchin — but give Republicans the competitive edge. Ohio and West Virginia were won by Donald Trump in 2020, and Sinema is not even sure she’s going to run after having left the Democratic Party.
Manchin, too, is hesitating. And Republican dreams of taking that seat from the West Virginia icon got a huge lift when popular current Governor Jim Justice said he may be ready to announce his bid for the Senate.
Whether Justice’s decision to enter the race would cause the 75-year-old Manchin to forgo his own run is unknown. What we do know is that Joe Manchin would be a formidable candidate. He’s the most popular politician in state history and has never backed down from a fight. Just ask Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has had several run-ins with Manchin — and lost.
As for Justice, Republicans are salivating at the prospect of taking Manchin’s seat.
“The governor has a good political sense. So I am assuming that he’s going to get in,” said Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.). “It would change things. He has a huge approval rating, he just passed the biggest tax cut in state history. He’s got a lot of good things to talk about.”
