Manchin cannot be the only strategy in West Virginia

One of the most conservative democrats in the senate is considering a job for the governor. Politics reported Friday that Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia in 2020 will challenge the Republican governor, Jim Justice. "I think about it every minute of every day. Now, thinking about it and doing it are two different things," he said. "I will make a decision sometime this fall. I think there is no rush at all. & # 39;

The news that a gubernatorial race is even on Manchin's brain is likely to disturb other members of his party. Democrats face a difficult path to recapture the senate in 2020, and the seat of Manchin is crucial; that is the stated reasoning of the national party for its tolerance of its conservative voting behavior. West Virginia is just too right wing, and Manchin is the only hope of the party. Governor Manchin means a new Republican senator. That is probably true, but regardless of Manchin's next step, sooner or later democrats will have to engage in defeatism over West Virginia and other conservative states.
