MCConnell Urged Trump to Reject West Virginia Candidate

In response, Blankenship issued a statement in which he said Trump "is a very busy man and he doesn't know me and he doesn't know how flawed my two main opponents are in this primary". National Republicans are scrambling to avoid a repeat, anxious Blankenship - convicted in 2015 of mine-safety violations - can't beat Democratic Sen.

So I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ask the people of West Virginia to make a wise decision and reject Blankenship! "I'm the only candidate in this race who has backed Donald Trump since day one, and as senator, I'll continue working side-by-side with him in the best interests of West Virginia and our conservative values".

But he still has the possibility of becoming the Republican nominee for Senate on Tuesday, even though President Trump urged voters to support Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va. or Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

All three leading candidates in the GOP primary have tried to attach themselves to Trump by emphasizing their commitment to his agenda. Manchin faces his own primary challenger Tuesday in progressive newcomer Paula Jean Swearengin.

Announcing the child's birth, they wrote: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. In related news, Prince William and Middleton welcomed their third child, Prince Louis , on April 23.

Blankenship argued that neither Jenkins or Morrisey could beat Manchin without his support, but he would prevail over the Democratic stalwart "even without the support of the establishment".

Many on the right are concerned if Blankenship wins the primary, he'll nearly certainly lose the general election to Democratic Sen. Trump won the district by nearly 50 points in 2016, but the districts ancestrally blue roots and historic support for Manchin may create a competitive race in November. He's also referred to McConnell as "Cocaine Mitch". His rise in the Republican field comes shortly after he was convicted in 2015 of skirting safety regulations that led to the Upper Branch mine disaster in 2010, which killed 29 miners and injured several others. But winning in West Virginia has become increasingly important for them in recent months, now that Democrats are posing credible challenges to GOP-held Senate seats in Arizona, Nevada and Tennessee. He followed the comments with an ad saying: "Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for China people".

"I think the president is right here", McCarthy said. "No more fumbles like Alabama", he wrote on Thursday, comparing the coal baron to failed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Trump's run was also defined by a host of conspiracy theories, from raising false questions about Ted Cruz's father being tied to President John F. Kennedy's death to repeatedly questioning President Barack Obama's birth certificate to besmirching Muslims by suggesting they were cheering in New Jersey on September 11. "We need to win in November".
