Trump Jr. joined Morrisey on the campaign trail at a stop in Charleston last month, and a source close to the president’s son says he’ll continue to be involved in the race down the stretch.

“This won’t be the last time that Don gets involved in the West Virginia race,” the source said. “Manchin is a top target of his.”

Manchin is one of 10 Senate Democrats up for reelection this year in a state Trump won in 2016. Trump carried West Virginia by more than 40 points, making Manchin among the most vulnerable of the red-state Democrats up for reelection.

Still, Manchin holds a 7-point lead over Morrisey, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

Trump Jr. has stumped for Rosendale in the state and helped raise more than $130,000 for his campaign at a fundraiser last month.

Trump carried Montana by more than 20 points in 2016. The only survey of the race taken this month found Tester with a slim 3-point advantage.
