Manchin Stumps For Obama on MSNBC

Gov. Joe Manchin appeared briefly on MSNBC Thursday afternoon to talk up the presidential campaign of fellow Democrat Barack Obama, and highlight the upcoming centennial meeting of the National Governors Association.

Manchin told Andrea Mitchell that while Obama was trailing Republican John McCain in West Virginia, it was only by "single digits." When she asked him about Obama's race being a factor in the Mountain State, the governor said "I don't think any more than any other place."

Manchin appeared to speak to Mitchell from a studio of WSAZ-TV, which promoted his appearance earlier.

Though Mitchell clearly identified Manchin as the governor of West Virginia, on-screen text described his location as "Charleston, S.C." Thanks, MSNBC.
