Joe Manchin is locked in a tough U.S. Senate race in a Democratic state against a perennial Republican candidate, look no farther than Jerry Thornton. Good vibes toward the governor will stop in the voting booth next week when Thornton, a Democrat, crosses party lines and votes for Republican John Raese. "I like Joe. I'd like to keep him as governor two more years, but I just don't trust him in Washington."
