West Virginia's governor is switching parties tonight at a rally with Trump

West Virginia's governor is expected to leave the Democratic Party and join the Republican Party on Thursday.
The New York Times reported that Gov. Jim Justice, a former businessman, would join President Donald Trump at a rally tonight in Huntington, West Virginia, and his party switch.
This wouldn't be the first time Justice has jumped parties — he was a Republican until just before he launched his run for governor in 2015.
He has also made no secret of his affinity for Trump and his agenda.
The coal-mining baron has referred to Trump as a family friend , and he occasionally texts and hunts with Trump's son Eric. During a gubernatorial campaign debate last year, he sparred with the Republican candidate, Bill Cole, over who was personally closer to Trump.
Throughout his brief political career, Justice has kept his distance from both parties. He has vehemently denied supporting the agendas of Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, and President Barack Obama. But he also rejected the West Virginia Republican Legislature's attempted budget cuts, instead proposing a budget with new revenue through tax increases .
The move would make Sen. Joe Manchin the last major Democratic leader in the state and leave Democrats with just 15 governorships .

The president haunts the race for governor of Virginia
VIRGINIANS are used to the president intruding on their lives: when Donald Trump played golf at the course that he owns in the leafy Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., boaters and paddlers were briefly banned from a two-mile stretch of the Potomac River that hugs the course. The policy, ordered by the Secret Service, was abandoned in late July after news reports that among those inconvenienced by the presidential security perimeter were veterans wounded in combat, about whom Mr. Trump has gushed.
But in another way, Mr. Trump continues to intrude on Virginia. The state’s gubernatorial election, due on November 7th, looks set to become a miniature referendum on his young, controversial administration.
Races for governor in Virginia used to be largely insulated from the national events that shape politics in other large, prosperous states. The state’s quirky tradition of off-year elections tended to reduce turnout, magnifying the strength of the most reliable voters: conservative whites. That gave the upper hand to... Continue reading
