This is not about the Democrats. Manchin’s hand can be pressed on this. He lives in a state that is going red by greater and greater margins. The message from Republcians and Independents should be “Follow the law. Let us Vote!”
I hope it works out better for West Virginians than it has for the fine folks of NY20 who don’t have a representative because according to Gov Patterson elections are “too expensive”. From a so-called “Democrat” no less!
And then there’s the Robert Toricelle Democrat-abuse-of-state-constitution debacle that allowed another fossil Lautenberg to get to the Senate. Doug Forrester (R) should have won that.
