The final time Joe Manchin took an out-of-state journey that obtained individuals speaking, he went to Texas for a fossil fuels lobbyist fundraiser.
Manchin is the chair of the Senate committee that conducts oversight on the fossil gasoline trade, and there’s a lot of coal cash in Kentucky. The logical rationalization is that Manchin was probably in Kentucky to both meet with donors or promise somebody that he’s going to work to get the local weather change provisions out of the reconciliation invoice.
