West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says he had a very productive and informative meeting with President-elect Trump at Trump Towers and is humbled by the job offer but he will not take a position in President-elect Trump’s administration and will instead stay in the U.S. Senate.
The grandson and great-grandson of immigrants, Manchin — taken from the Italian “Mancini” — calls his delicate walk between his party and his own identity a journey of “balance” and “common sense.” And he attributes his success to his small-town upbringing and experience as a state legislator, secretary of state and governor dating back to 1982.Read More
