ATHENS - Senator Joe Manchin pays a visit to Concord University to kick off his "Commonsense Solutions" tour. Today marks the beginning of a one-week trip across the Mountain State, in which Manchin plans to meet with veterans and community leaders about programs and initiatives. At Concord, Manchin addressed the $10 million expansion project for Bluefield's veteran's center, and he says he hopes to have some good news to deliver soon about its progress. Manchin heads to Marshall University to speak to students on Tuesday.
