GOP Senator John Cornyn Texted Manchin Encouraging Him To Join the Republican Party

Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, said Tuesday that he reached out to West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, to encourage him to join the Republican party after he opposed President Biden’s Build Back Better legislation. In an interview with Austin-based outlet KXAN, he said he texted Manchin, “Joe, if they don’t want you we do.” Cornyn said he did not hear back from Manchin.

Manchin will never join the GOP, but I could see him going independent and caucusing with the Democrats.
