West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R), who switched parties to become a Republican in early August, told a crowd of Republican lawmakers this week that he supports Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) re-election to the U.S. Senate, according to West Virginia Metro News.
Said Justice: “Joe Manchin has been a friend of mine. Now he may be a terrible person to y’all but Joe has been a friend of mine and I’m going to tell you this as straight up as I can be: Joe Manchin is becoming a very key, integral part with Donald Trump. And I’m going to take my read off of Donald Trump.”
