McCain to Joe Manchin: Why not just switch parties already?

Campaigning Tuesday in Charles Town, W.Va., for Manchin’s GOP foe John Raese, McCain said the governor should become a Republican and run against fifth-term Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) in 2014.

“I did notice that Gov. Manchin is running away from President Obama as fast as he can,” NBC reported McCain saying. “If I can make a suggestion, I would suggest that the governor become a Republican and run against Rockefeller next time.”
