"We got our work cut out for us, but we have a story to tell".

He went on to say that Manchin's "no" vote was against hard-working families keeping their hard-earned money and that he did not support tax cuts for job creators.

"When the time came to repeal & replace the disaster of Obamacare, Joe voted NO". "When we empowered West Virginia to defund Planned Parenthood, Joe voted no". "And when it comes to securing our Southern border, Joe said, 'I'm not voting for the wall, either, '" Pence wrote.

Pence said these changes won't happen overnight but encourages West Virginians to not lose hope.

Manchin faces re-election this year.

"Last week, I worked in a bipartisan way with Senator Collins to end the shutdown, and last night President Trump called for unity and bipartisanship". "The vice president's comments are exactly why Washington Sucks".

Despite disagreements with Republican colleagues, Manchin said he remained committed to working across the aisle for legislation to improve the nation and to improve West Virginia. Thirty-four Senate seats are up for election in November, but 26 of those are held by Democrats. While Danny didn't say he agreed with Trump 100 percent, as Pence paraphrased, he did say Trump "knocked it out of the ball park" with the speech. He shared his disappointment with Manchin's constituents during a speech in White Sulphur Springs, W.V., where the GOP is holding their annual retreat.

Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross will visit Greenbrier County on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

Vice President Mike Pence is coming to help raise money in a congressional election in southwestern Pennsylvania widely viewed as a test of whether Republicans can stave off Democratic gains this year.

"I was taught in West Virginia there's a little bit of respect, and you should show that".
