It's so ironic

He (Manchin) is pulling this bullshit thinking he's ensuring re-election. Do you really think the dems in his state will vote enmass for this turn coat? doubtful! Any right winger is not going to vote for a repub light. So the ironic thing is his choice is self preservation. His days are the most numbered of all senators now.

Another office?
Or something else was offered to him.

Turtle gave him something very nice I assume.
