Manchin Gets Coal Association Endorsement, Libertarian Praise
Really tells you all you need to know about him, doesn't it?

Gov. Joe Manchin received accolades from two groups Thursday that have the potential of defusing some of the main arguments Republicans are using against him as he seeks a seat in the U.S. Senate.

First, the West Virginia Coal Association endorsed Manchin during a press conference in Charleston, saying he has consistently taken a stand against what it describes as President Barack Obamas attack on the coal industry. Manchin attended the event.

Second, the Cato Institute of Washington, D.C., a libertarian think tank, named Manchin one of the nations most fiscally responsible governors. He was only one of four governors to receive an A from the organization and the only Democrat among the four.

Both come at a critical time for Manchin. Recent polls have shown him in a statistical dead heat against Republican businessman John Raese. The GOP has put much effort into trying to tie Manchin to Obama particularly Obamas energy policies so Manchin and association officials spent a good part of the news conference pointing out the differences. We have witnessed this governor put his finger in the chests of EPA officials and say that jobs mean more in West Virginia than what youre objecting to and not giving us the permits, WVCA Executive Director Bill Raney said.
