I sat and watched this rally (which is a first for me) and Trump continues to draw large crowds of passionate supporters. His speech energized the crowd with continued promises and in particular the crowd was extremely receptive to the notion of investigating Hillary. I only wish they'd be able to get rid of some of the clowns behind him when he speaks as they are very distracting.  I was glad to hear that the governor switched from DEM to GOP (his suit was terrible) and hope that it's a continuing occurrence throughout the nation.

If you switch from the Democrat to the Republican Party .... what's the chance you'll behave like a RINO?

You're state swings behind Trump, and it looks like you're political career is gonna be -over- next election unless you can cut off a viable GOP challenger.   What's a desperate Dim got left?   Rip the popular POTUS and alienate yourself from the voters in West Virginia?   Stage a "come to Jesus moment", switch parties.... go with the flow... the political winds are shifting... 

What would've happened if Trump was TEA?  ...would we get candidates who's seat is "in play" declaring they see-the-light and are TEA?

sigh... for a democrat to switch to republican today, it's just a flip of a letter, replace the "D" with an "R".  completely painless.

Yeah, he'll probably fit right in with the likes of McStain and Lindsy, her butt boy.

He's an asshole....along with Joe "Jihadi" Manchin who was the former Governor and supposedly a Trump supporter. These two guys get big bucks from "Coal" and right now "Coal" is pissed over the failure to dump Obamaocare which really screws over the miners (black lung etc). Manchin knows he won't be re-elected even though he supports "Coal" and gave West Virginia open and concealed carry with or without a permit. That's why he ain't switchin'.

If The Gov gets re-elected he'll switch back to a Dem.

Yep, matters not what side of the fence you slither under, you're still scum for lack of values in the first place. This guy is an opportunist playing to soulless, ignorant drooling Trumpanzees who eat that shit up.

If I lived in West Virginia, I might know more about this guy.
But he's pretty much a blank to me.
The bold paragraph above pretty well nails it.

Maybe the big story here is that the political winds are changing.
The state that kept Robert KKK Byrd in the Senate for 50 years
is now voting Trump by a clear margin.
They FINALLY caught on that the Democrats are not their friend!
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

I think this illustrates how so many politicians are more interested in staying in office than their beliefs.

Yep, a never ending battle, which is why we need a part time Legislature and a public entity that has the power to cut all their God Damned perks.

The GOP won another seat when there wasn't even an election. The democrats are that bad.

Myself I see a democrat just become a RINO.

A nine year old thinking he's in the Washington Zoo, "Look Ma!  A baby RINO!!!"

"Yep, they're not really born, they're sort of switched, like trans-gendered, like those bathrooms - if you feel like a Democrat, OK, feel like a RINO, OK, feel like TEA... Oh, that's really, really naughty!"
