It appears the political scoreboard is continuing to favor the GOP.
According to three Republicans sources, Justice, who was sworn in this past January, will switch from being a Democrat to being a Republican, making him the 34th Republican governor currently in office, a number the party has not reached in nearly a century.
This is likely not so great news for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-VW), who is up for reelection in 2018 in a state that Trump won handily during the 2016 election.
Trump has already said that there was going to be a “big announcement” at the Huntington, West Virginia rally. Perhaps this might be a spoiler.
