Thank you, Sen. Manchin

I want to thank Senator Manchin for voting to remove President Trump from office. The decision couldn’t have been easy in our state that voted so heavily for Trump in 2016. But Senator Manchin asked his constituents to contact him and his office the last few weeks to get our input. He kept us informed on where he stood and what was going on in the trial.

Even though Trump and his followers knew there was no risk of him actually being removed, Manchin didn’t do the easy political thing he could have done. Instead he voted to remove the president and explain himself to the state. Senator Manchin held President Trump to a high standard that all Americans should hold any president to.

So again, thank you Senator Manchin. I hope on election day this year our fellow West Virginians hold Trump to the standard we expect our president to be.
