CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Gov. Joe Manchin has kept West Virginia's US Senate seat in the hands of the Democratic Party on Tuesday.

The popular governor won the special election for the late Sen. Robert C. Byrd's seat, despite Republican efforts to paint him as a rubber stamp for the policies of President Barack Obama. The president's popularity, and that of his policies, has been on the decline as the economy continues to sputter.
