West Virginia Governor Joe Machin's Country Roads (PAC)

It wouldn't surprise me if he were to make a appearance here in Georgia during the General Election.

Conservative Democrat Joe Manchin has a national political action committee he's forming called "country roads" (PAC). He will be raising money to attend political events around the country. And he will take over as chairman of the National Governors Conference on July 1 of this year, giving him another national stage for his future political aspirations such as the U.S. Senate in 2012, which some observers say he's had his eye on for a while.

Since West Virginia's constitution limits a governor to a maximum of two successive four-year terms in office, Manchin must leave that office at the end of his current term.

But he's coy about his future political plans.

So, full speed ahead for the governor's national political action committee because it will take a lot of money and time to mount a successful statewide campaign again. It's the right thing to do. But call it what it is, his own way of building up a 2012 campaign fund that will give him the inside track on his anticipated move from the executive mansion to the halls of the U. S. Senate.

I wouldn't rule out the possibilty of him running for president in 2012 if things don't improve like the deficit, debt, jobs, etc.

Manchin couldn't run for President in 2012, it's the Obama reelect. However, I believe we will definitely see Manchin on the ticket for Senator in November.
