Blankenship: I'm Trumpier than Trump

Senator Elizabeth Warren questions Alex Azar during a Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on his nomination to be Health and Human Services secretary on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S Top News: GOP outsider Blankenship emerges as think about West Virginia Senate race, forward of four state primaries Tuesday

Trump also said "Remember Alabama", referring to Democrat Doug Jones' stunning win in the Senate race in that state in December over Republican Roy Moore, who was dogged by allegations of improper relations with underage girls. "Does Blankenship winning all of a sudden put this off the table for the Republicans?"

Blankenship released a truly heinous campaign ad Friday attacking Mitch McConnell, calling him "Cocaine Mitch" and claiming he got rich off of "China people" and his "China family".

Republican leadership was outraged.

Blankenship has repeatedly stated on the campaign trail that Morrisey is at fault for the opioid epidemic in West Virginia, and vows he will not support the attorney general if chosen as the Republican nominee.

One issue is the Upper Big Brand Mine disaster in 2010 that killed 29 miners. "Our polls are close", Morrisey conceded to a small audience on Sunday night.

GOP operatives in D.C. are concerned Blankenship might have a hard time beating Sen.

No matter who wins, Democrats think they have a chance to pick up this seat, which Trump won by 11 points, in the special election in August.

Tuesday will mark the biggest day of the 2018 primary season so far as elections for Senate, House, and governors' seats kick off in four states, FiveThirtyEight reports. Attorney General Patrick Morrisey plans to call Blankenship's probation officer to confront him about the candidate's refusal to comply with federal law by not filing a personal financial disclosure.

Good work.' I think he was happy I was able to poke it off their stick, and he gave me a little push to get up the ice". The Golden Knights grabbed a 3-2 series lead with a 5-3 win in game four. "You've got to win four, not three".


"The President 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 ..."

"Tomorrow, West Virginia will send the swamp a message-no one, and I mean no one, will tell us how to vote", he added. He recommended that people vote for a guy that was basically accused of pedophilia in Alabama, " Blankenship said in an apparent reference to Trump's endorsement of Moore. "West Virginians knew that Obama was against them and coal".

On his use of the term "China people", which made national headlines, Blankenship says the "fake news" forgets that "China is a country". "It's not any slander here". The president may be facing a similar situation with Blankenship.

Greg Thomas, a Blankenship spokesman, said, "Mr. Morrisey is just having a tantrum". Sure, Trump endorsed Moore's primary opponent - appointed Sen.

Trump's tweet on Blankenship starkly reveals both of those character traits. But the Republican strategist I spoke with suggested that they might actually boost the coal baron. Not on what Blankenship has said or what he believes. "Trump's tweet opposing him could be the final ingredient for what every other surprise win has required this cycle".

However the primary turns out, the race has exposed deeper divides within Trump's party as G.O.P. elders grapple with the ascension of yet another rogue populist.

"No, I'm realistic", Trump Jr. replied. "But it's not an inconsiderable concern".
