Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is in Texas for a fundraiser with rich Republican donors from the fossil gas business.

The Fundraiser Is All About Manchin Conducting Oversight On Fossil Fuels

The fundraiser has nothing to do with voting rights, but it surely reveals why Manchin may very well be a barrier on one other necessary challenge going through the Senate. Given his journey to Texas, will probably be no shock if Manchin opposes local weather change rules.
