U.S. Senator Tells Media He Might Switch Parties

Fox News just reported that Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) may leave the Democratic Party. He might join the Republican Party if there is a 50-50 split or the Democrats are in the minority.

This is potentially huge news. If the senate was to fall into a 50-50 split and Hillary Clinton wins the White House, the Democrats would effectively control the senate because Tim Kaine would be the tying vote.
