POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — A player in one of the biggest political battles for the U.S. Senate, playing out not only across the state but across the country, was in Point Pleasant Tuesday night.
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D) attended the “It’s All About West Virginia Rally and Dinner” at Trinity UM Church’s community building, speaking to a packed house. Manchin is facing a challenge from GOP Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in a race that has seen not only President Donald Trump intercede in an attempt to get another Republican seat in the senate but the national media spinning the “what ifs” of winners and losers in the Mountain State.
Commissioner Rick Handley introduced Manchin who hit upon health care, Social Security and Medicare, the opioid epidemic, rural connectivity and broadband, as well as bipartisanship (and the lack of it) in Washington, D.C.
