Speaking to Trey Gowdy on Fox News, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) called on Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) to switch parties, saying “There’s still plenty of time [Manchin] can still switch parties if he wants to, I encourage him to do so.”

Lee went on to say, “There’s no reason why he belongs with the party of inflation, why he belongs with the party of lawlessness, why he ought to remain with the party that’s harassing intimidating and belittling him at every turn, just so they can fundamentally remake the American economy and American society.”

Less also said, “Joe Manchin absolutely should leave the Democratic Party and I look forward to embracing him when he joins our caucus. What they see here is that they belittle him and intimidate him enough that somehow he relent. That’s of course, not going to happen. Joe Manchin’s got a backbone and he’s got principles, and he’s also got constituents, you know, he represents the good people of West Virginia, including a whole lot of poor and middle-class Americans who are finding that everything they buy from gas to groceries from housing to healthcare, is getting more expensive, unaffordably so, and they’re understanding increasingly that this is happening as a result of federal government. It’s just printing money to the tune of trillions of dollars it doesn’t have, that hurts America’s poor middle class.”
