Well, this puts Coal’s Best Friend Sen. Joe Manchin in a funny place:
[TRIANGLE, VA.] The United Mine Workers of America today reiterated its support for Senate Bill (SB) 1, the “For the People Act,” and renewed its call for its passage in the United States Senate.
Needless to say the UMWA are one of Manchin’s biggest backers. I don’t pretend to know if the UMWA endorsement will made a difference, but Manchin must have noticed it. There’s a world of difference between getting Koch money and getting votes; Manchin must be doing the calculus.
