News & Politics

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said in a statement on Tuesday that his wife had been hospitalized after a car accident on Monday.

Gayle Conelly Manchin is federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission, a position to which she was nominated by President Joe Biden.

“On Monday, my wife Gayle and her colleague Guy Land were involved in a car accident on the way from the airport to the hotel in Birmingham, Alabama for an Appalachian Regional Commission event that was planned for today. Both were admitted to UAB Hospital and are receiving excellent care. She remains in stable condition but will stay there for a couple of days for precautionary measures. We want to thank the first responders who answered the call and were first on-site to provide assistance and support,” Sen. Joe Manchin said in a statement.

The senator and his wife have been married for more than 50 years.

Manchin, whose term ends in early 2025, announced last year that he would not seek re-election.

The lawmaker has said that he thinks President Joe Biden has veered too far left.

Manchin has also sounded the alarm about America’s ever-expanding national debt.

“The national debt is the greatest threat our country faces — and we are rapidly approaching the crisis point,” Manchin, GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.), and Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.) declared in a recent opinion piece. “There is growing appetite on both sides of the aisle to address our national debt. It is time for Congress to put the interests of the country ahead of political expediency and get us on sound fiscal footing before it is too late.”
