Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said in an interview published Wednesday that he regrets backing Hillary Clinton in 2016, and hinted that he could back President Trump’s re-election in 2020 – as he looks to fend off a Republican challenger in November.
There is one major problem with this scenario. If every moderate DEM such as Manchin were to win their vulnerable seat, they could turn the Senate.
That would put radical LW Chuckie in charge of the agenda and would effectively shut out any moderate DEM from having any impact.
If it comes down to a choice between a moderate Republican or a Moderate DEM, the moderate Republican has to be the choice in order to keep Chuckie from being the majority leader.
