Big GOP Recruiting Victory … Jenkins Reportedly To Run Against Manchin In WV

CNN’s John King is reporting that Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV) will run against Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in the 2018 West Virginia Senate Race.

King says that the Republican establishment forces are considering this a, “recruiting victory for one of the 2018 marquee Senate races.”

However, King notes that Jenkins will probably face a primary challenge but the GOP establishment has promised fund-raising and other support for his campaign.

Defeating Manchin will be an uphill fight King points out that since the former West Virginia governor is still popular in the state.
