Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) declined to say when asked if he wants Democrats to keep control of the House and Senate after the 2022 midterms.
“Do you want the Democrats to keep control of the United States Senate and House of Representatives” in November? NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Manchin in a Sunday interview with “Meet the Press.”
“I’m not making those choices or decisions on that. I’m going to work with whatever I have. I’ve always said that. I think the Democrats have great candidates that are running. They’re good people I’ve worked with. And I have a tremendous amount of respect and friendship with my Republican colleagues. So I can work on either side very easily,” Manchin said in response.
“I think people are sick and tired of politics, I really do. I think they’re sick and tired of Democrats and Republicans fighting and feuding and holding pieces of legislation hostage because they didn’t get what they wanted,” he said, adding that he’s “not going to predict what’s going to happen.”
Furthermore, the Democrat senator added he “can’t decide what’s going to happen in Kansas or California or Texas,” adding, “I respect the state for the people they send, and I give it my best to work with them, to do the best for my country. I don’t play the politics that way.”
