Republican candidates hoping to oust U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin in the fall took turns attacking the incumbent Democrat's record during a forum in West Virginia.

They also aligned themselves as much as possible with President Donald Trump during the 90-minute forum that lacked fireworks and harsh finger pointing among each other Monday night at Wheeling Jesuit University.

The six candidates took turns giving reasons why they're the best choice to face Manchin in November.

They also answered individual questions, such as U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins' previous alignment with the Democratic Party and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey's past lobbying ties to the pharmaceutical industry. Others were asked about their lack of experience in the public sector.

The forum was hosted by The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register.
