Response to Hortensis (Reply #23)

33. It's a threat to hold over Manchin's head, he's up for reelection in 2024.

Manchin's arrogance comes from the idea that 'nobody but me' can win as a Dem in 'deep red' WV.

But scratch below the surface and it's obvious that WV has a long history of electing Dems to the Senate (Byrd, Rockefeller) and really is a conservative-left state but votes Repub due to social issues. Give them a conservative Dem (who comes across as empathetic, unlike Manchin) like Jim Justice and he'll win easily IMO.

It would be better if Justice would run against Capito (R) at some point for the other seat, so there'd be two Dem Senators from the state.

But the idea is to let Manchin know he's not so special as he likes to think he is.
