Manchin Sides with Washington Special Interests

Doug Sachtleben - February 07th, 2017

“Many West Virginians responded to Club for Growth ads and urged Senator Manchin to support President Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement after Senator Joe Manchin joined a failed effort by Washington liberals in voting against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education:

“We know that many West Virginians responded to calls and ads by the Club for Growth and called Senator Manchin’s office to urge him to support President Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Unfortunately, Senator Manchin sided with the power and money of the teachers unions in voting against the president’s nominee, who presents a clear threat to their status quo. The Club for Growth remains committed to alerting Manchin’s constituents when he sides with Washington special interests and votes against their conservative pro-growth principles.”
