Several miedia outlets are reporting Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., was named one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential People of 2021” Wednesday. He was listed in the “Leaders” category along with President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Sen. Liz Cheney and Stacey Abrams. TIME’s feature on Manchin was written by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. Collins praises Manchin for working across the aisle. Manchin’s profile rose in the Senate following the 2020 election, which divided the chamber into 50 Republicans, 48 Democrats and two independents. As a moderate, he is courted by both sides of the aisle for his vote.
