Senator Asked to Leave Democratic Party

Senator Asked to Leave Democratic Party

(WatchDogReport.org) – On October 20, Mother Jones dropped an alleged “scoop” claiming Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) was telling people close to him that he wanted to leave the Democratic Party. The lawmaker responded to the report, calling it “bulls***” and said he has no control over the rumor mill. Now, another senator is asking Manchin to make the rumors a reality.

During an interview with Fox News host Trey Gowdy, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said there’s time for Manchin to leave the Democratic Party. The senator went on to say he doesn’t think the West Virginia lawmaker “belongs with the party of inflation” and lawlessness. Lee pointed out the Left is constantly attacking Manchin and demeaning him to get him to follow their lead.

Lee went on to say he looks “forward to embracing [Manchin] when he joins” the Republican caucus.

Manchin is taking a lot of heat from the Democratic Party right now because of his refusal to vote for their $3.5-trillion human infrastructure package. The senator wants his party to reduce the cost of the bill. Unfortunately for Manchin, it doesn’t seem as though his party will stop attacking him any time soon.
