Manchin Joins National Call for Dem Unity

As chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, Gov. Joe Manchin issued a statement with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean after their party ended their primary season Tuesday.

"Democrats must now turn our full attention to the general election. To that end, we are urging all remaining uncommitted super delegates to make their decisions known by Friday of this week," the statement said.

The Los Angeles Times has an item on the statement.

Manchin is among those uncommitted super delegates, as earlier reported. He also headlined a Tuesday rally in Parkersburg "to promote unity of the Democratic party" there, The Parkersburg News reports.

Update: The Parkersburg Register also covered the unity rally, where Manchin " announced plans to call for all superdelegates nationwide to make their presidential nomination selections by this weekend."

The Governor then left to apply ointment to the blisters on his ass from riding the fence for so long.
