Manchin who is up for reelection in 2018 already has two Republican challengers.

Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.), announced his campaign to unseat Manchin in May. Jenkins said Manchin had “changed” when he got to Washington, D.C., and the Republican lawmaker played up his support for Trump in his announcement.

“Joe changed when he got to Washington. West Virginia values? Not anymore,” Jenkins said.

West Virginia’s Republican attorney general, Patrick Morrisey, has also declared his candidacy for the seat.

Manchin won reelection in 2012 with 60.6 percent of the vote.
