A new report is indicating that Joe Manchin is growing frustrated with the lack of bi-partisanship in the Senate and is considering an early exit to run for governor in his home state of West Virginia.

According to The Daily Caller:

Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin is reportedly considering vacating his Senate seat before his term ends and launching another bid for the governorship of West Virginia, according to a report published Thursday.

Manchin has confided in colleagues that he is exceptionally frustrated with Congress’s lack of bipartisanship and consequently thinking about leaving the Senate, reported The Hill.

When asked if he is happy with the Senate’s productivity, he replied, “Not at all.”

“I haven’t been happy since I’ve been here,” he continued. “I’ve always thought there was more we can do. It’s the greatest body in the world, so much good could be done.”

The current governor of West Virginia, Jim Justice who became a Republican after getting elected is up for re-election in 2020.
