Joe Manchin had a boatload of chances to show his independence from the Democrats party. He could have been the lone Dem senator to break with his party and vote with Republicans on Repeal of Obamacare. He chose not to.

Coming from a state that Donald Trump carried by 42 points, promising repeal, Manchin shows that he may talk a good game, but when the vote comes up, he sticks with the Democrats.

The ad also shows him PRAISING Hillary
