Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) on Wednesday dismissed a report that he is actively thinking about dropping out of the Democratic Party as "bull#" and "rumors."
"It's bull#," Manchin, a centrist, said bluntly after he was asked about a report published in Mother Jones that he has told "associates" he is actively thinking about leaving the Democratic Party.
"I have no control of rumors, guys. No control of rumors," Manchin insisted after walking out of a lunch meeting with fellow Democratic committee chairmen just off the Senate floor.
Manchin denies story he’s considering leaving Democratic Party: “It’s bull#,” he told me. He added: “I have no control of rumors.”
