According to new reports GOP Senator John Cornyn of Texas apparently reached out to West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin to encourage him to jump ship and join the Republican party.

As The Hill reports:

Cornyn told KXAN — an Austin-based TV station that is part of Nexstar Media Group, which also owns The Hill — that he texted Manchin, “Joe if they don’t want you we do,” but hadn’t heard back.

“I don’t know what he will decide to do. But I do know West Virginia has gotten increasingly red. …So yeah, we’d love to have him. That would change the majority,” Cornyn added.

The Senate is split evenly 50-50 with Democrats holding the majority because Vice President Harris can break a tie. If Manchin left the Democratic Party and joined with Republicans that would give the GOP a 51-49 majority and make Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) the majority leader.

Speculation about Manchin’s party affiliation has swirled around Washington, D.C., for years.

Manchin has been under significant pressure from his own party, especially after his announcement Sunday that he would be voting against President Biden’s much sought after ‘Build Back Better’ bill.

A single economically sensible decision does not necessarily qualify one as a conservative Republican. Examine the rest of his history before making rash overtures.
