In fact, Blankenship proudly declared himself "Trumpier than Trump" and doubled down on the Trumpiest campaign tactics: unironic self-aggrandizement and unabashed disdain for the facts.
The GOP looks to flip a couple of seats in November.
"We think the fella who was nominated carries some pretty substantial liabilities", said Sen.
Rupp said Manchin will have to "stand against the red tide" in West Virginia.
Manchin brought in about 70 percent of the Democratic primary vote, with 94 percent of precincts reporting. Ted Cruz (R), and former representative Mike Espy has an open field to the Democratic Party's nomination in MS as Republicans are engaged in a bitter, ideological contest.
