A growing number of Republican lawmakers are calling on Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to switch parties and join the GOP.

Meanwhile, some Demcorats are pushing for Manchin to leave the party after killing Joe Biden's $1.8 trillion Build Back Better spending package.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said it would be a "great idea" if Manchin were to switch parties.

Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) assured Manchin that he would be well-received if he made a move.

"I am not sure whether Senator Manchin will switch parties, but I have no doubt the Republican Party will welcome him with open arms, as they did with me," Van Drew told Fox News in a statement.

Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported Manchin was considering leaving the Democratic Party.

"Personally, I hope Senator Manchin does make the switch, and speaking from experience, I can say it was one of the best decisions I ever made."

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) also said the switch would be welcomed.

"I think it’s pretty rich when Bernie Sanders, who wasn’t even a Democrat at all until six years ago, is criticizing Joe Manchin for not being a good Democrat," Cotton said.

"So maybe it is time for Sen. Manchin to come over, and we’d welcome him with open arms if he did."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also said he likes the plan, saying:

"A lot of folks ask, ‘Well, gosh, is Manchin going to become a Republican?’

"I hope he does. I've asked him to.

"I think every Republican senator has made that case a dozen times to Joe," Cruz said.

"I will say I think it's a tough hill for him to climb.

"He's just culturally, he's a Democrat.

"He's been a Democrat his whole life, and he's really the godfather of Democrats in West Virginia."

"So I get why switching parties, that's hard.

"That being said, if they're nasty enough, the best thing that could happen is they could drive him over to the Republican Party, and we would welcome him."

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told local Austin outlet KXAN he sent a note to Manchin saying of the Democrats, 'Joe, if they don’t want you, we do'

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) told local Austin outlet KXAN he sent a note to Manchin saying of the Democrats, "Joe, if they don’t want you, we do."

"I don’t know what he will decide to do," Cornyn said.

"But I do know West Virginia has gotten increasingly red, and I think his vote on Build Back Better is reflective of what he hears from his constituents in West Virginia.

"So yeah, we’d love to have him. That would change the majority."

Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported Manchin was considering leaving the Democratic Party.

Manchin told his associates he was planning to leave the party if his colleagues failed to find a way to cut down the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation plan to $1.75 trillion, Mother Jones reported.

The number of House Democrats retiring rather than running for reelection in 2022 is growing, with another five seeking statewide or other offices rather than remaining in the House under Joe Biden.
