Manchin will support Deb Haaland for Interior secretary, boosting her chances

Source: NBC News

WASHINGTON ó Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Wednesday he'll vote to confirm nominee Deb Haaland to be Interior secretary, a significant boost to her prospects.

In a statement, Manchin said that "while we do not agree on every issue, she reaffirmed her strong commitment to bipartisanship, addressing the diverse needs of our country and maintaining our nationís energy independence."

Manchin's swing vote is closely watched in contentious nomination battles, particularly after he came out against President Joe Biden's budget chief nominee Neera Tanden on Friday, a move that threw her prospects into doubt.

The centrist senator touted Haaland's bipartisan credentials.

raising the price of epi-pens 600% or so it made sense... She dumped on his daughter and not it's pay back time for him...

4. Yay!

... I like her a lot. I think Manchin has some more wiggle room, now, considering his state (red). I think this plays nationally, too... a lot of attention to Manchin and Democrats are looking good to moderates and independents.

11. Perception matters to many voters, especially in red states

Some of them like their officials to appear like mavericks.
