Opinion | Two observations about Joe Manchin supporting a Republican for Congress

Opinion | Two observations about Joe Manchin supporting a Republican for Congress

West Virginia is losing a congressional seat, a situation that has two Republican incumbents going head-to-head in one of its two remaining districts. This weekend, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., weighed in on the race in the most on-brand way possible. In a 30-second ad, Manchin reminds West Virginia’s voters that if he “can't go home and explain it, I can't vote for it, and that's why I opposed Build Back Better.” Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., also was against the legislation, Manchin said, despite what his opponent in the GOP primary, Rep. Alex Mooney, claims. McKinley “has always opposed...

I hadn't even known he'd gotten an appointment.The overwhelming relief I felt wasn't just because, after his second dose, he'll be safe for the first time in over a year.

For an optimal experience visit our site on another browser.Dec. 24, 2020, 10:30 AM UTCBy , MSNBC Opinion ColumnistThe comparisons between Charles Dickens’ miserly, Christmas-hating curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge, and members of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet flow fast and easy. And yet , who’s maintained his position at the top of the commerce department throughout Trump’s presidency, is the clear choice in my mind for the official who most fits the bill.By all accounts, Ross has been an absolute nightmare of a secretary, one who “” In literally any other...

Lindsey Graham is acting like he didn't just win re-election

Lindsey Graham is acting like he didn't just win re-election

But while it’s easier than ever to lose track of time, someone needs to remind Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., that the election is over — . He doesn’t need to keep acting like President Donald Trump has any power over him anymore.Trump’s campaign is still doing everything it can to in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, searching for something — anything — to prove Democrats tipped the scales in President-elect Joe Biden’s favor.

Even as big names...
