After Polls Find Him Trailing – Dem Joe Manchin Decides to Sue Obama Administration

Yesterday the polls put Dem Governor Joe Manchin down 5 points to Republican John Raese in the West Virginia Senate race.
Today he will sue the Obama Administration.
The Campaign Spot reported:

Wow. How much does West Virginia Senate candidate Joe Manchin have to distance himself from the Obama administration? This much:

Gov. Joe Manchin has scheduled a press conference Wednesday morning where he is expected to announce that the state is filing suit against the federal government over the Obama administration’s crackdown on mountaintop removal coal mining.

Any more distancing and Manchin will switch parties.

Obama has a 29% favorable rating in West Virginia. As promised, his policies have killed the coal industry. Suddenly, after finding himself down in the polls, Joe Manchin seems to care about those lost jobs.
