Did Manchin Appoint Himself to Fill WV Senate Seat?

In 2010, Manchin said he wouldn't appoint himself to Sen. Byrd's (D-WV) Senate seat......

When Byrd died on June 28, 2010, Manchin appointed Carte Goodwin (his 36-year-old legal adviser) on July 16. On July 20, 2010, Manchin announced he would seek the Senate seat. In the August 28 Democratic primary he defeated former Democratic Congressman and former West Virginia Secretary of State Ken Hechler. In the general election he defeated Republican businessman John Raese with 54% of the vote.

Fun fact: Robert Byrd is the longest serving US Senator ever (as of the air date of this episode) having served from Jan 3, 1959-Jun 28, 2010 for a total of 51 years, 5 months, 26 days. He beat Daniel Inouye and Strom Thurmond by ~1.5 years and ~4 years, respectively.

Would You Rather...?

How about some thinkers to cleanse the palate? Enjoy!

  • See Marjorie Taylor Greene on the 2024 Republican ticket OR see Hillary win the presidency in 2024?

  • If you were trapped on a desert island, would you rather be trapped with AOC OR with Bernie Sanders?

  • See DC gain statehood before 2024 OR see HR-1 'The For the People Act' be signed into law before 2024?

  • See Tucker Carlson be relegated to a life of anonymity OR one of Trump's children win the presidency in 2024?

  • The US enact major climate/environmental legislation such as The Green New Deal OR see all Americans gain healthcare coverage?

  • The Capital rioters face consequences for their actions on January 6th OR see Biden seat a majority left-leaning SCOTUS during his time as President?

Who do you think might be our 47th President?

Kamala Harris
