7. Even if he votes 100% with the GOP, he's puts us one seat closer to taking control of the senate.

Dems can't rely on Manchin's party-line vote so let him go.
These purity tests serve no good purpose. Especially for those of us who can count and who value being one seat closer to having a majority with him. It's maddening every time this keeps being brought up. Fact of the matter is, as "imperfect" as he is... he's the BEST we can hope for at that point in time when it comes to West Virginia voters. If not him, they'll elect a republican... when we're one down and they're one-up... that's a net loss of TWO SEATS. (I LOVE MANCHIN!! I HOPE HE STAYS!!)
