Manchin, a moderate Democrat, is among those up for reelection next year being targeted by Republicans, who hope to seize on President Trump's wave of support in West Virginia in the November election.

The ad, put out by the Senate Leadership Fund, splices together a slew of clips of Manchin voicing support for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonTrump notes 'election meddling by Russia' in tweet criticizing Obama Former Obama advisor calls Fox ‘state sanctioned media’ Biden rips Senate GOP healthcare bill, says it 'isn't about healthcare' MORE during the 2016 campaign.


“Don’t be fooled,” a banner at the end of the ad reads, apparently casting doubt on Manchin’s willingness to work with Trump after he was elected.

Manchin has been among the Democratic senators most willing to cooperate with Trump following the bitter campaign, voting to confirm all but four of Trump’s Cabinet nominees that have gone before the Senate.

Manchin is among a handful of Senate Democrats facing potentially difficult reelection battles in red states next year. Sens.
