Quid pro Joe is back!
Joe Biden on Friday announced he is nominating Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s wife, Gayle Manchin, for federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.
Joe Biden made this announcement as debate over the filibuster has reached a boiling point.
The filibuster requires 60 votes to pass most legislation in the Senate. Getting rid of the filibuster would allow the Democrats to ram through far-left, extreme measures with a simple majority.
Senator Manchin, a key “moderate” West Virginia Democrat has said he will “never” change his mind on the filibuster.
It looks like Joe Biden is trying to grease the wheels a bit by nominating Manchin’s wife to a key role.

Joe Manchin and Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema have both stated they are against ending the filibuster.
Notorious race baiting grifter Al Sharpton has admitted to Politico that he plans to tar and feather Democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) and Joe Manchin (WV) if they continue refusing to support their party’s attempt to end the filibuster.
Sharpton said that him and other activists will be accusing the senators of “supporting racism” and opposing voting rights for minorities.
