Republicans, democrats, fight, obamacareWest Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin (pictured) won his Senate election last week after promising to repeal "the bad parts of Obamacare," and Republican aides say they'll hold him to it. Republicans also are looking at Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Jim Webb of Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana. All three are vulnerable in their 2012 races in Republican leaning states.

“Not only do you have new Democrats coming in who have campaigned against healthcare, you have Democrats up in 2012 who are running in relatively red states,” a senior Republican Senate aide tells Politico.
