While Swearingen - a progressive who had predicted that her challenge of Manchin would be a long shot - didn't win the Democratic primary, she gained morevotes than any of the GOP candidates, including Morrisey. Morrisey was eventually declared the victor; he'll face incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin in a contest that could decide control of the Senate.
The only GOP House member who managed to take a major step toward promotion to the Senate on Tuesday was Rep. Jim Renacci, who will now challenge Democratic Sen.
Republicans also waged bitter Senate primary battles in IN and OH, two other states that Trump won in 2016 and where incumbent Democratic senators are up for re-election this year in key races in the battle for control of Congress.
Morrisey said the general election won't be one filled with personal attacks, but claimed Manchin has become a creature of Washington.
The biggest Republican loser of the night was actually on the House side: Rep. Robert Pittenger was ousted in a primary by pastor Mark Harris in North Carolina's 9th District, which stretches southeast of Charlotte.

Democrat Doug Jones defeated the Republican candidate Roy Moore following allegations of sexual misconduct.
Which is why Blankenship's surging popularity in the days approaching Tuesday's election threw the GOP into a panic, spurring President Donald Trump to weigh in on the contentious race. With almost two-thirds of the vote counted, 567, 000 Republicans cast votes, to 412,000 Democrats.
Blankenship also said he would rule out a write in or third party bid if he doesn't think he could be viable and when asked if a third-place finish in Tuesday night's Republican Senate primary met that standard, the ex-con coal baron agreed.
Shortly after being called as the victor, Morrisey pivoted and turned his attention toward Manchin, whose race against progressive newcomer Paula Jean Swerengin was called early Tuesday evening.
Blankenship, who has poured millions of dollars into state elections, vowed he would not support Morrisey in the general election. A pro-Trump political action committee America First was airing ads promoting Gina Haspel, Trump's nominee to be Central Intelligence Agency director, and urging residents to call Manchin to support her confirmation.
