WVGOP Statement on Senator Manchin's Donations from D.C. Liberals, Coal Haters
Today, West Virginia GOP Chairman Conrad Lucas released this statement on the recent report that 98% of donations to Senator Joe Manchin's campaign during first quarter fundraising came from out-of-state donors and special interest groups:
"Senator Manchin just sent a message to West Virginians that he is beholden to liberal pals in D.C., not the voters who once put him in office.
Why can't Senator Manchin raise money in West Virginia? Probably because West Virginians know Senator Manchin stood with the most anti-West Virginia figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Planned Parenthood. He's scared to knock on the doors of real voters here.
It must be challenging for Manchin to garner support from citizens here, since he proved to be just another pro-choice, anti-coal, career politician.
Manchin can count on just one hand the number of donations he received from actual constituents. It's clear that he is more concerned with keeping his seat and cozying up to liberal big money, than representing the state we love."
