52 past the hour right now. folks are heading to the polls for primary elections in west virginia and nebraska. the contests providing another test of former president trump's influence over the gop. joining us punchbowl news co-founder and msnbc political jake sherman. great seeing you. let's talk about first the governor's race in nebraska. >> reporter: charles herbster against jim pillan. herbster has had some allegations of sexual
7:54 am
harassment. i think we'll see here whether donald trump is enough to blunt some of those allegations. and furthermore, i think an important issue is this is a parochial race in a sense, right? won and lost on local issues, not necessarily national issues. if you look at the add campaigns which we've been tracking very closely in punchbowl news, they're trying to wage a national campaign about the border. nebraska is, of course, nowhere close to the mexico border. we'll see if a message like that resonates. >> meanwhile, in west virginia, not exactly close to the border either, two republican incumbents are facing off for a state in a seat in the house, right? >> this is the most interesting race of the day. david mckinley versus alex mooney. two house republicans, mooney has donald trump's endorsement. mckinley is, if you watch his
7:55 am
campaign ads, is trying to make it seems as if he also has donald trump's endorsement. he's aired ads with trump in it. he has quite interestingly the endorsement of joe manchin, the prominent democratic senator. he cut an ad for mckinley who has a traditional voting record. he's being whacked on his vote for the infrastructure bill which obviously joe manchin championed. there hasn't been a ton of public polling there. i think mooney has a healthy lead in some of the polling, obviously small sample sizes. it's always interesting when you have the member-on-member primaries to see who comes out on top. >> i was wondering if these races would make an impact on the upcoming midterm elections. >> not this race at all. this is a significantly red district in a state that donald trump carried by a huge margin. he's a republican against a republican. we have to stay away from the
7:56 am
temptation to suggest that every race is a referendum on donald trump's power on the republican party. donald trump is still extraordinarily popular in the republican party. he's going to lose some races. he's going to win a lot of races. if he ends up 50/50, that's a pretty good track record for endorsements. >> jake sherman, always a pleasure to see you. thanks for being with us. that wraps up the hour for me. i'm jose diaz-balart. i'll be back after a short break as we await president biden's remarks on the fight on inflation. i'll see you in just a second. choose stelara® from the start... and move toward relief after the first dose... with injections every two months. stelara® may increase your risk of infections, some serious, and cancer. before treatment, get tested for tb.
