An organizer with #AllofUs2016, Claire Sandberg, said Monday at a protest outside the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee that progressives were planning a primary challenge to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).
“The only member of congress who we’ve said, ‘We definitely need to support a primary challenger to this member,’ is Joe Manchin,” Sandberg said.
Sandberg said that her group had started a “Primary Joe Manchin Fund” to kickstart fundraising for a potential challenger.
“If [Democrats] won’t fight Trump, we will find other people who will,” Sandberg said. “We will actively start supporting primary challengers who emerge to challenge Democrats who are refusing to fight Trump’s agenda.”
Manchin has said that he would support President Trump’s nominee to succeed Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.
