Trump Urges West Virginians Not to Vote for Don Blankenship

Kucinich and Cordray are top candidates in the Ohio Democratic primary for governor

Loyalty to the president is a central issue in the Republican primaries, and GOP candidates across all four states are aiming to prove to voters that they are the true Trump ally. This was going to be a tough race for the Republican candidate to begin with, Trippi added, but this primary fight means there's another unnecessary hurdle for the eventual candidate to overcome.

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! That would be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is married to former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, whose family owns a shipping company, which owns a ship upon which drugs were once found.

The Republican president maintains a strong approval rating in West Virginia at 61 points, according to March polling from Morning Consult.

Blankenship is running a scorched-earth campaign, attacking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

Blankenship will reveal his finances after the West Virginia primary on Tuesday.

Blankenship is running against Rep. Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Trump's tweet also said West Virginia voters should recall what happened in Alabama in December, when Democrat Doug Jones won a special election for a Senate seat against Republican Roy Moore, whose campaign was derailed by accusations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

Domestic violence call led to standoff, explosion
He said utilities, which were cut to the home and surrounding area late last night, will still be affected for another few hours. North Haven police say a building on the property exploded later in the night while a SWAT team was negotiating with the man.


The West Virginia GOP primary is this Tuesday, May 8. The establishment is misinforming Trump, Blankenship told NBC Monday.

In a press conference on Sunday, Morrisey argued that Blankenship failed to submit a financial disclosure, violating campaign election law.

Blankenship has repeatedly explained away his time behind bars by saying that the mine explosion was a conspiracy orchestrated by the Obama administration while peppering in comparisons of himself and former South African President Nelson Mandela, who spent 27 years as a political prisoner.

Many on the right are concerned if Blankenship wins the primary, he'll nearly certainly lose the general election to Democratic Sen. The only public poll in the race released in late April showed Morrisey and Rep. Evan Jenkins leading Blankenship.

But the President's son does not share that sentiment and unleashed a series of tweets on Thursday urging West Virginia Republicans to vote against Blankenship. Joe ManchinJoseph (Joe) ManchinMorrisey attacks Blankenship ahead of GOP Senate primary in W.Va.: "Laws exist for a reason" GOP takes gloves off against Blankenship in West Virginia Morrisey: Blankenship "would get crushed" in November MORE (D), a top Republican target. No more fumbles like Alabama. Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic and someone mentioned as a possible 3rd party candidate for president in 2020, hit Trump for that mentality in a tweet Monday.

Trump did the same during his 2016 presidential run. "Let's find the very best person in West Virginia and not have a situation where we can't compete in November".
