National Review Endorses Morrisey in GOP Senate Primary

Fox News Calls Out Rep. Evan Jenkins on His 'Phony' Campaign Ad Senate candidates host events, gain endorsements

Blankenship Cites Left-Wing Source To Attack McConnell The ad doesn't explain what he means by "Cocaine Mitch", but a separate statement from the campaign reads: "His father-in-law who founded and owns a large Chinese shipping company has given Mitch and his wife millions of dollars over the years".

Blankenship has expressed admiration for Trump's ability to confound expectations and win the White House.

This isn't the first time Blankenship has taken aim at McConnell.

Manchin is not running unopposed; he races a primary challenger in Paula Jean Swearengin, an environmental activist whose platform is more in line with Sen.

GOP Senate candidate Don Blankenship of West Virginia released a freakish new political ad on Monday in which he branded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "Cocaine Mitch" without explanation.

Morrisey, a long-time Clinton critic, is seen shaking hands with the 2016 Democratic candidate in a photoshopped image used in one of Jenkins' recent campaign advertisements.

Switzerland deems Mahmoud Abbas's speech 'unacceptable'
Liberal Jewish groups like J Street and American Friends of Peace Now said his remarks were incendiary and offensive. There can be no peace with holocaust denying anti-Semites. "It does, however, elevate hatred to a new level".


"One of my goals as U.S. senator will be to ditch 'Cocaine Mitch, '" Blankenship said in an ad on Facebook, explaining later that he was referring to McConnell's father-in-law's Chinese company, whose ship was allegedly used to smuggle $7 million of drugs from Colombia to Europe.

And, when he got a chance to speak, ex-coal mine executive Don Blankenship - released from jail past year - called them both opportunists who aren't up to the job.

"The concern of the Republican National Committee about a Blankenship nomination appears real", Robert Rupp, political science professor of West Virginia Wesleyan College, told AFP, noting that party intervention may solidify Blankenship's claim as the outsider taking on Washington. Since 2000 the Republican presidential nominee has carried the state. Blankenship will be joined on stage in Morgantown by Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va. and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. "But I have an issue when the father-in-law is a wealthy Chinaperson and has a lot of connections with some of the brass, if you will, in China". Blankenship said he believed McConnell has a conflict of interest in foreign relations matters, in particular those dealing with China.

Toward the end of the 30-second ad, Blankenship refers to the majority leader as "Cocaine Mitch" while talking about making children a priority.

"I'm not going to D.C.to get along", Blankenship said.

"I know that I was falsely imprisoned", he said, saying that some legal documents called "302s" were withheld from his defense team during his trial.
