Beto has been getting under the skin of some Democrats with his in your face “Hell yes we’re gonna take your AR-15” message. One of these Democrats, who doesn’t to be lumped in with his gun confiscation message, sent Beto a BIGLY message today:
Dem Sen. @JoeManchinWV on Beto pledge to confiscate AR15s:
"Beto's one human being. He gave his own opinion, OK? I think it was very harmful to make it look like all the Democrats. I can tell you one thing: @BetoORourke's not taking my guns away from me. You tell Beto that OK?"

Wow, Manchin just dropped Beto like a bad habit.
Of course, Manchin is a red state Democrat from West Virginia, no less. There’s no way he could survive his next election if he went anywhere close to Beto’s anti-gun message.
In other news, Beto is attacking the NRA with a PETITION for fighting back against his AR confiscation message:
Today, the @NRA sent out a petition calling on supporters to "tell Beto no" to a mandatory buyback program. But the @NRA doesn't represent the American people—and today, we can prove it. Sign our petition calling for a buyback of every AR-15: https://t.co/kn9JE70h8F https://t.co/L22OiTvKFh

Sign his petition and get tons of desperate messages to send him money because his gun confiscation message is killing his campaign? Yeah, no thanks.
