Early political career

He was elected to the West Virginia Legislature beginning with the House of Delegates in 1982 and moving to the Senate in 1986 where he served until 1996. As a Senator he heard (along with A. James's son and Joe's cousin, Senator Mark Anthony Manchin) the impeachment trial of his uncle, A. James Manchin, then the State Treasurer, but his uncle resigned the day that the trial began. A.

Term as Governor

He announced his intention to challenge incumbent governor Bob Wise in the 2004 Democratic Primary in May 2003. Eventually Wise decided not to run for re-election, becoming the first governor not to do so since the practice was permitted in 1972. Manchin then won both the primary and general election by large margins. His election marks the first time that two persons of the same political party have followed one another in the governor's office since 1964. As Governor, he is a member of the National Governors Association, the Southern Governors' Association, and Vice Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association. Robert Ellsworth Bob Wise, Jr. ...

In July 2005, Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship sued Governor Manchin alleging that he violated his first amendment rights by threatening to retaliate with increased government scrutiny of his coal operations. Blankenship poured substanial amounts of money into a campaigns to defeat the pension bond amendment and prevent the re-election of Supreme Court Justice Warren McGraw. He also fought against an increase in the severance tax. Soon after the defeat of the pension bond amendment, the Division of Environmental Protection revoked a permit approval for controversial new silos near Marsh Fork Elementary School in Raleigh County.

During the 2006 Sago Mine disaster of early January 2006, Manchin initially appeared to confirm reports that 12 miners had survived. These reports proved to be incorrect three hours later, when it was confirmed that only one miner survived the accident. In an early-morning press conference on January 4, Governor Manchin acknowledged that an unintentional miscommunication had occurred with rescue teams within the mine. Manchin stated that the incorrect information he received regarding the status of the miners was not received through official channels. He did not confirm the story, the press assumed he did. No one is aware how the story was confirmed. Wikinews has three articles on the accident: Coal miners trapped in West Virginia mine 13 coal miners trapped in West Virginia mine 12 coal miners are found dead, 1 in critical condition, in West Virginia mine The Sago Mine disaster was a coal mine explosion on January 2, 2006 in...

On February 1, 2006, Manchin ordered a stop to all coal production in the state of West Virginia pending safety checks after two more miners were killed that day in separate accidents [1].

On April 15, 2006, during an Easter visit to U.S. soldiers stationed in Iraq, Manchin caused a controversy by posing for photographers while signing two missiles at Balad Air Force Base. One of the messages read "Sending you to hell, from Almost Heaven, West Virginia." He explained his intentions to the media saying, "I just thought, 'Hey, these are people doing tremendous harm to our people.' I wanted to send them a little message." [2] After receiving several complaints, Manchin issued an apology.

In light of the publicity he has received since the Sago Mine disaster, many media outlets have speculated that Manchin is considering a run at the Presidency (or at least consideration for a Vice-Presidential nod). Manchin, however, refuses to comment on such speculation.[3]


Beyond the Governorship

Manchin is considered to be one of the most popular Governors in recent West Virignia history. Due to his strong roots in the state community and his immense popularity in the state, there is a widespread assumption that Manchin might run for the U.S. Senate if Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) retires in 2008 or Manchin might replace himself if Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) passes away. Manchin would be able to do that, since the law requires the Governor to replace the vacant seat.
