Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, “has all the right qualities” to be a Supreme Court Justice during an interview with Metro News on Wednesday.

Metro News host Hoppy Kercheval asked Manchin if he was leaning toward supporting or opposing Kavanaugh.

Manchin, who is considered one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats seeking reelection in 2018, has been targeted by Republicans as a possible swing vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“No, I don’t have a lean. I think he seems to be a very fine person of high moral standards. A family person who’s very involved in his community. Has all the right qualities. He’s well-educated,” Manchin said.

“Most importantly, Hop, I intend to hear from West Virginians. And during that period of time, I just announced, I’ll be hearing from West Virginians and their opinion[s],” Manchin said. “I think they have, also, a right. And that’s who I work for. They’re my boss. And we want to hear from them, too, during this process.”

A poll, conducted by Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and released on Tuesday, found 59 percent of West Virginia voters want Manchin to confirm Trump’s nominee.
