Former GOP Representative Mia Love appears to be confusing West Virginia with Virginia
Yes, Mia, there is a West Virginia.
Former Republican congresswoman and current CNN commentator Mia love seemed extremely confused on Tuesday about the status Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) representative, repeatedly suggesting that it was Virginia.
During a CNN investigative panel debate on Tuesday afternoon, there were also Former Representative Joe Kennedy (D-MA), Love was first asked if she thought Manchin would leave the Democratic Party among radioactive dust end his opposition to the Biden administration’s Better Back Building Act.
After saying she wasn’t sure if he’d switch parties, Love, who represented a congressional district in Utah for two terms, went on to suggest that Manchin lacks compromise is “really making a lot of people in his state very happy with him.”
Meanwhile, CNN host Jim Sciutto brought up the fact that Manchin is receiving opposition from some powerful groups in his state over his BBB stance—including unions representing coal miners. He then asked Kennedy if the union asking Manchin to reconsider could make a difference in the senator’s final decision on the broad climate and social spending package.
“Look, I think any constituency from within West Virginia that will speak out about this will have a problem with Senator Manchin,” Kennedy replied.
“It’s a lot more important than some interest group from across the country that you don’t represent, you don’t get elected to represent, and that doesn’t have any leverage over how you’re going to vote, ‘ he continued. “Your home state, your family community, your constituency, is something very different.”
The former Massachusetts congressman further noted that “West Virginia coal miners” have a “deep legacy in that state,” wondering if that might sway Manchin’s vote because of him. pretty proud” declaring that “he will always try to speak for the people of West Virginia. ”
Despite Kennedy’s repeated mentions of West Virginia, Love immediately began talking about the state’s larger and wealthier neighbor to the east.
“But remember, this is Virginia,” she announced confidently. “Remember what happened to [Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn] Youngkin and the fact that he was able to win. And the way he was able to do that is because he listened to his constituents. He’s listening and focused on what’s going on in Virginia.”
“So I think this is a lesson that Virginia is not happy with the bill as it stands,” Love concluded. “So Joe Manchin is really doing, I think, the president being a favor and a favor in himself by saying, ‘I’m not going to come along to get along.’
Instead of asking her why foster Virginia rather than the state Manchin actually represents, Sciutto ended the segment and thanked her two guests while wishing them a Merry Christmas.
According to the records, West Virginia officially seceded from Virginia in 1861 during the Civil War, shortly after Virginia seceded from the Union. It was then admitted to the Union in 1863.
