Following the address, Romney told reporters he “asked” Manchin to sit with him. Manchin chimed in, we’re “showing unity, working together. Showing the whole world we’re together in standing behind Ukraine.”
“Sen. Manchin sat with his colleague Sen. Romney to remind the American people and the world that bipartisanship works and is alive and well in the U.S. Senate,” said Sam Runyon, communications director for the West Virginia Democrat.
