A Republican, Manning's district included suburban Youngstown as well as rural Mahoning County. Manning previously served in the United States Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal. He had also worked in the criminal justice system and served on the New Middletown Village council, and was active with youth service.
Manning previously ran in 2016, losing to incumbent John Boccieri. In 2018, Boccieri ran for the Ohio Senate, and Manning ran for his vacant seat in the House of Representatives. Manning defeated Democrat Eric Ungaro, 50.35% to 49.65%.
As a candidate, Manning was interviewed by Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom, expressing his strong support of their views that vaccinations should not be mandated by any government entity, saying that "any time we have an opportunity to keep the Government out of our lives, I'm on board." Manning received the group's Verified Candidate designation for his views.
Two months after taking office as State Representative, Manning introduced legislation (House Bill 132) that would require school officials to provide the legal exemptions as well as the state-mandated vaccination requirements.
Manning died suddenly on March 20, 2020 after being taken to a local hospital for chest pains.
