Tuesday's primaries in four predominantly Republican states left Democrats with a big cash advantage and a handful of new openings. After all, it is not uncommon for control of Congress to change hands during a presidency for a variety of reasons, including dissatisfaction with those now holding office and the perceived strength of opposition to the president himself.

Donald Trump Jr's presence is not going to help anything for Republicans who are already struggling. "Writing in, If I can't do better than it looks like I am doing so far tonight, I don't think I can make the difference". Although it is hard to calculate how much Democrats need to win the House national vote by (which the generic congressional ballot is roughly measuring) in order to win a majority of seats, 7 points seems to be a consensus estimate with a wide margin of error. Trump's approval rating among voters is 44%, while his disapproval rating is 51%. Manchin's campaign has said he had more than 11,000 donors in the primary. But he became much more critical of Blankenship when the facts came out about the disaster and the coal baron took the heat for those miners' deaths.
Manchin coasted to the Democratic nomination, but he remains a top Republican target this fall.
Among the possible options is Blankenship putting his support and money behind a person who was not a candidate in the Senate primary.

Blankenship defended his language to a Roll Call reporter, saying, "We're confused on our staff as to how it can be racist when there's no mention of a race". Walorski won her last two races with comfortable margins after earning a narrow victory in 2012 to the seat vacated by current Democratic Sen. Republicans are more positive toward Ryan (67% favorable) than Democrats are toward Pelosi (57% see her favorably). The results suggest that Ohio Democrats aren't crippling themselves with any lingering fight between party liberals and establishment figures.
