This Michigan town might be proof that Biden has a China problem

On Tuesday, a rural Michigan town voted to oust five local officials who
backed tax breaks for a multi-billion dollar Chinese-affiliated battery
plant. It’s a potential warning sign for President Joe Biden and
Democrats’ clean energy agenda, and it could offer Republicans a winning
political strategy in crucial swing states. POLITICO’s Kelsey Tamborrino
breaks down how a tiny town sent a big message to China and Biden. Plus,
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin announced Thursday he will not seek
reelection to the Senate in 2024.
