PTL: Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Seek Re-Election

From The New York Times:

Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, a Democrat known as a bridge between the parties, said on Sunday that he would run for re-election, quieting speculation that he would abandon his seat to run for governor.
 
Mr. Manchin, who has voiced frustration over the fractious nature of Congress, said he was now optimistic about the Senate’s capacity for bipartisanship.
 
“I think we’ve made some inroads,” he said on the CBS program “Face the Nation.” “I really believe that we’ve changed the whole process to a certain extent in the Senate to where we’re willing to put our country first.”
