Manchin Announces Presidential Endorsement

Via The Washington Examiner:

Sen. Joe Manchin will back Joe Biden for president, ending speculation that he could support President Trump’s reelection effort.

“I will, absolutely,” the centrist West Virginia Democrat told Politico when asked if he’d endorse Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. 

Manchin said he has been in talks with Biden’s team about an endorsement for weeks. 

“I’ve been working and talking to different people. We’re definitely getting there. You just can’t leave people behind that did the heavy lifting and that’s worked hard, whether it’s producing coal or producing energy for this country. They just need an opportunity to live their lives and have that opportunity. And I think Joe Biden understands that,” he said.
