West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin has tapped a former aide to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death of Robert C. Byrd. Manchin said Friday
that former chief counsel Carte Goodwin will serve in the post. Goodwin is expected to take the oath of office on Tuesday.
Good news! Goodwin will be sworn in on Tuesday at 2:15 pm and immediately after they will vote on the unemployment extension! And it WILL pass!
On another note... John King on CNN just covered this story and (I swear) he was calling him Corte Williams. Huh? Can't they even get names
