A trio of red-state Democratic senators have turned down invitations to attend President Trump's announcement of his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Democratic Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) were invited but declined to attend the event at the White House at 9 p.m. Monday.
Donnelly said in a statement that he declined so that his first meeting with Trump's pick will be "in a setting where we can discuss his or her experience and perspectives."
"I appreciate the President inviting me to attend tonight's announcement at the WH. I look forward to meeting the nominee in a setting where we can discuss his or her experience, judicial philosophy & perspective on access to healthcare for WVians with pre-existing conditions," Manchin said in a separate tweet.

Trump remembers ....
and I am glad he does
“perspective on access to healthcare for WVians with pre-existing conditions”
Help me out here. I’m tearing out my hair trying to find reference to this in the Constitution.
I don’t agree. I think they’re trying to walk a political wire.
Or am I overthinking this?
I am so loving watching these unhinged Dems show their true biased hateful true colors.
Deal with it and as their black Messiah once said, “We Won”
“””””perspective on access to healthcare for WVians with pre-existing conditions

You should read the Constitution. The right to healthcare is on the same page that says abortion is a right.
“Im tearing out my hair trying to find reference to this in the Constitution.”
It’s in between the ‘Separation of Church and State’ clause and the ‘Midnight basketball’ clause.
You must need a new copy of the living, breathing document.
No such thing as "overthinking" when it comes to President Trump and his genius for rope-a-doping demoncrats...
Donnelly and Heitkamp are toast this year.
The GOP will flip those two seats.
If #2 becomes the sacrificial lamb this time around, he or she will never again be a viable choice.
Like the North remembers?
When they win, the media oohs and ahhs at any communist nutcase nominated, but when we win....
That struck me too. Why are they wanting to know someone’s position on specific policy issues? Are we saying there is a constitutional right to coverage of a pre existing condition? What the heck?
Most excellent, dude! Shows them for who/what they really are.
And, Faux Snooze sent me my “alert” saying West Virginia is leaning democrat! Manchin is toast in West-By-God! IMHO
According to Rush there are 10 Democrat Senators who are in “red states” and will be considering their futures when they vote for the new Justice.
I thought it was a “prenumbia?”
