An open question for the Wheeling Intelligencer: What is the limit -- what does Donald Trump need to do or say before you will criticize him?

For starters, he’s been sounding a lot like a Republican
West Virginia’s Democratic senator, Jo Manchin, was on CBS Face the Nation earlier today. Among other questions, he was asked about his own personal aspirations and whether he would endorse Biden:
