Just a day before West Virginia's primary election, President Donald Trump has weighed in on the GOP Primary.
In West Virginia's 3rd Congressional District, an open seat race with Jenkins running for Senate, Democratic state senator Richard Ojeda, who was brutally beaten in 2016 ahead of the primary election, has garnered attention for his appeal to voters in deep red Trump country.
Of course. Screw what's right, it's only about hanging on to power. "This thing has been going on within the Republican Party for some time and it resulted in Trump", he said. They are also childishly calling me "despicable" and 'mentally ill.' The war to drain the swamp and create jobs for West Virginia people has begun.
He has also made freakish attacks on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a major part of his campaign platform, standing by his use of the racial slur "Chinaperson" to describe McConnell's father-in-law, and arguing in a campaign ad that McConnell "has created millions of jobs for China people".
Blankenship responds to Trump: "The President... doesn't know me and he doesn't know how flawed my two main opponents are in this primary". The former CEO of Massey Energy served a year in prison for his involvement in the deadly Upper Big Branch mine explosion.
Firebrand conservative Moore won the state GOP primary over Trump-backed Luther Strange, then lost to Democrat Doug Jones, amid numerous damaging allegations about Moore's past inappropriate behavior with women.
In an interview with CNN, Morrisey said the contest had "shifted to a two-person race" with Blankenship and admitted that he underestimated the candidate's power earlier in the race.
Blankenship has centered his candidacy around attacking fellow Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, accusing him of undermining Trump. But when you can do a lot of ads over a long period of time, you may be able to convince people that your motivations are a little bit difference.

If James's much reviled supporting cast starts consistently contributing like that, the East may be there for the taking again. Green also played his irritant role perfectly as he got into it with multiple Pelicans and helped fire up the home crowd.
He explicitly referenced the race at the end of the event, as he asked the audience to cheer for Jenkins or Morrisey in a demonstration of how the crowd planned to vote in the upcoming GOP senate primary.
"I think it could be misunderstood - people love Trump's policies and his commitment to West Virginia, they don't necessarily love individuals".
"I hope West Virginia voters will listen to President Trump when they go to the polls tomorrow", Morrisey said in a statement.
Republicans want to retain control of Congress in the November congressional elections that are viewed by some as referendum on Trump's presidency. Blankenship has recently come under fire for comments he made about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and McConnell's wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.
"I hate to lose".
"No, I'm realistic", Trump Jr. replied. "We need to win in November".
