About Joe Manchin.....Not up for reelection till November 2024..Just so everyone knows.

Joe doesn't care about anyone...& ...the above is why. He was last elected in 2018...He is a Senator. Senators get elected
every 6 years according to the U.S. Constitution. He only cares about himself and doesn't worry about nothing. Joe has
got more than 2 1/2 more years till another election...(November 2024. Source: Wikipedia at link below.

He’s lining up some million dollar feathers for his and his family’s nest when he gets out of the Senate. This is why I always laugh when people say term limits is the answer

According to Wikipedia she has been running for office for many years, and intends to stay in office. Where as Manchin,
is in his 70s and could retire before the 24 election. At link below, is her Electoral history:

He was a long shot to get re-elected in 2024 regardless but this just sealed that won’t happen. He only won in 2018 by 3%. There is no other Democrat in WV that could even get 40% of the vote so primary him out and it’s a Republican seat anyway.

I think he won’t run in 2024 and hasn’t been planning on it. The only path to re-election for him would be to switch to Republican as soon as possible.

Watch closely what the other hand is doing.

These 2 don't give a sQuat what happens. They'll walk away & cash in.

Thre are a bunch of cowardly Republicans hiding behind the focus on these 2.
And many are up for reelection in 22.
