Would Back Reelection of Dem-Turned-Indy Sinema

West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin said Sunday that he would back Democrat-turned-Independent Sen. Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for 2024 reelection.

  • If Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego competes as expected for the seat next year, Manchin would be backing a candidate not in his party.
  • Machnin cited Sinema’s unwillingness to help Senate Democrats end the 60-vote filibuster for the passage of most legislation.
  • “She stood tall when it was time to stand tall, protecting the institution,” Manchin said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
  • Manchin also argued that when some conservatives called for the end to the filibuster while Donald Trump was president and Republicans controlled the Senate, he and Sinema opposed the so-called nuclear option in 2019.
