Joe Manchin Goes To Texas For Republican Fundraiser As Democrats Battle For Voting Rights

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is in Texas for a fundraiser with rich Republican donors from the fossil gasoline business.

The Texas Tribune reported:

The host committee contains titans of the Texas oil and fuel business — lots of whom donate virtually completely to Republicans. However there’s a outstanding Democrat included among the many hosts: former Houston Mayor Invoice White. White was the 2010 Democratic nominee for governor.

The Fundraiser Is All About Manchin Conducting Oversight On Fossil Fuels

Some will attempt to join this fundraiser to the combat over voting rights, however in actuality, the Republicans are donating to Manchin as a result of he controls Senate oversight of the oil and pure fuel industries.

It doesn’t matter what the aim, the fundraiser will not be a superb search for Joe Manchin. Democrats within the state legislature left the state to dam a voter suppression invoice from passing, whereas Joe Manchin goes there to gather buckets of Republican money.

The fundraiser has nothing to do with voting rights, but it surely reveals why Manchin might be a barrier on one other vital problem dealing with the Senate. Given his journey to Texas, it will likely be no shock if Manchin opposes local weather change rules.
