Senator Joe Manchin Wants Hillary Clinton to Stay out of West Virginia Re-Election Campaign

Democrat Sen. Joe Machin, who is up for re-election next year, was not all that receptive to the idea of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joining him on the campaign trail.

The senior senator from West Virginia appeared on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC” on Sunday to discuss the state of his campaign and the immense unpopularity of Clinton among the voters in his state.

When asked if he’d like Clinton to join him on the campaign trail, Manchin unequivocally responded in the negative.

“It wouldn’t be wise for Hillary to come to West Virginia. It wouldn’t be a good thing for her or for me,” he said.

The longtime Democrat went on to say that he is friends with the Clintons, having known them for many years and worked with them on state issues. However, Manchin also explained why he wouldn’t want Clinton associated with his re-election — and why she is so despised by coal miners in his state.

“We have a great relationship. It’s just that things that were said it was just very harmful and very hard to justify,” he explained. “She made a big mistake and it was wrong.”
