    Manchin leaves the Democratic Party and registers as an independent. Rumors he may run again in ‘24 against Jim Justice.

    The sad thing is, based on 2020 results, even if Manchin and Justice split the red vote, the Dem would still lose.

      He hasn't voted as a Democrat in at least a year and has screwed over Biden with the Federal Courts for months...this is not surprising.

      So that makes it 50-49-1?

        Still 51-49. He’s going to continue caucusing. Probably splitting hairs, but an NBC article pointed out today is an important day to do it, because resigning today allows him to run for Senate in WV without the state having a say if he can be on the ballot. They’re allowed to disallow someone if they had switched parties within 60 days of a primary.

          LOL. That tracks. I hope the Dems just run a full-on Lefty in that case. Better to die on your feet than live on your knees. And I swear to Christ a True Lefty can take 34% of the vote anywhere in this country. Maybe not 35 in some places... but 34. And I'll bet in the real horses-arse red area of this country there is actually a higher percentage of the Loony Left -- the guys even I want to slow their roll. Because living among those GOP cretins all your life takes a toll.

            It's fine. I'd rather he leaves the party, campaigns on how ****ty the dems are, and still votes with us about 50% more than Justice will.

            Manchin is by far the most valuable senator in the senate. Maybe of the last 50 years.

              Nah screw that. The lefty will get slaughtered and pull votes from manchin guaranteeing a ****tier result for democrats. Just an incredible self own if they do that.

              it's the difference between the VP breaking the tie and Senate Majority Leader McConnell.

                    This is a winning strategy...Kepler is living in a land of unicorns and rainbows where ideas like that work and don't completely screw everything up.

                      I assume there is no way Manchin wins, unless the Dems literally do not run a candidate. dx, I agree with you about Manchin's value, but come November he ceases to exist.

                          Yeah Manchin is banking on his name giving him a shot as an Independent but his name value has been dying each election.

                            Manchin is just like every politician in WV. They have no interest in changing their worst in the country statistics, because those stats simply keep them in power.

                              Beau brought up the point that Manchin might be eyeing the WV Governor's seat. And that he wants to avoid the stigma of having a "D" next to his name in that race.

                              That makes sense, especially if he wants something a bit less stressful.

                                This is exactly what I’ve read. Manchin has a far better chance winning the governorship against Morrisey, a far-right whack job he’s already beaten once in the 2018 Senate race, than he does against Jim Justice. Looks like he endorsed the Democratic candidate, a political neophyte, right before he switched parties, and the head of the WVa Democratic Party is none too happy. Won’t claim to know how that would affect anything. But to echo everyone else, Manchin is far better than any Republican. I’d turn a liberal Democrat in California into a conservative Democrat before I ever wanted Manchin turned into a Republican…
