There could be a new Secretary of Energy. There is talk in the White House of replacing Rick Perry with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. This would allow the new Republican Governor Jim Justice to fill Manchin’s seat with a Republican.
Governor Justice recently became a Republican. Many have suggested that Senator Manchin should consider switching.
One less Democrat in the Senate would give Republicans a better chance at repealing and replacing Obamacare. It might be the only way to get rid of Obamacare.
Currently, a hard-left, Bernie-loving candidate hopes to take senator Manchin’s seat in 2018.
Where would Rick Perry go? Possibly to Homeland Security, reports say.
It’s not known if Senator Manchin would even take the position and he says he’s not been in any talks about it. He’s happy as the senator from West Virginia, he says.
