I Want to Hear From West Virginians About the Supreme Court Nominee

The Free Press WV

As U.S. Senator for West Virginia, I have a constitutional obligation to advise and consent on a nominee to fill Supreme Court vacancies and I take that responsibility seriously. Just as I did when Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch were nominated, I will evaluate Judge Kavanaugh’s record, legal qualifications, judicial philosophy and particularly, his views on healthcare.

The Supreme Court will ultimately decide if nearly 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare. This decision will directly impact almost 40% of my state, so I’m very interested in his position on protecting West Virginians with pre-existing conditions. As I have always said, I believe the Senate should hold committee hearings; Senators should meet with him, we should debate his qualifications on the Senate floor and cast whatever vote we believe he deserves. I look forward to meeting with Judge Kavanaugh, examining his rulings and making a determination of whether to provide my consent.

What’s with this Senator Manchin?

You heard from West Virginia voters in two presidential elections…..but chose to give your super-delegate vote to the two individuals that WV voters did NOT support?

You gave your super-delegate vote to both BHO and HRC…..when voters said otherwise.

We were burnt twice. Not again.  We remember.
