Trump Urges West Virginia Republicans to Oppose Blankenship

Trump Urges West Virginia Republicans to Oppose Blankenship”

Senate hopeful Don Blankenship is lashing out at President Donald Trump after early morning tweets urged voters to support opponents of the West Virginia Republican.

Trump has one big reason not to support Blankenship: Roy Moore, the defeated GOP Senate hopeful in Alabama, who won the primary but lost the general election he was favored to win after reports that he'd made inappropriate advances toward teen-aged girls.

Many are convinced that a Blankenship win, coming just months after the disastrous Alabama Senate race, would destroy the party's prospects of defeating Democratic Sen.

The President adds his voice to the national Republicans who are anxious that Blankenship's upstart campaign could upend plans to run either Republican Rep. Evan Jenkins or Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who are seen as more electable, against vulnerable Democratic Sen. Trump won almost 70 percent of the vote in West Virginia in 2016, making Democratic Senator Joe Manchin one of the most vulnerable Democrats on the ballot this fall.

"West Virginians are not going to vote for candidates who have failed to address the drug epidemic, aligned themselves with abortionists, and have never created a job", he said.

Ahead of Tuesday's primary, a national Republican operative tells ABC News that candidates are starting to pull out all the stops now that it's "down to the wire".

Blakenship is said to be rising in the polls against his two main challengers, possibly even leading, in the runup to the primary Tuesday.

Disagreement is based on Facebook's use of personal data and its attempts to weaken the service use of encryption. Jan Koum has been recently growing a lot of concern on Facebook's focus on collecting and selling user data.

U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart in Charleston says his office has no information regarding Morrisey's claim but adds it "would not be a violation" of Blankenship's supervised release.

Both the Morrisey and Jenkins campaigns reportedly have internal polling showing Mr. Blankenship with a small lead. "They are showing that Blankenship and I are tied". Blankenship is one of 6 GOP candidates vying for the U.S. Senate seat that is now held by W.Va. Democrat Joe Manchin. Or the time when he said that term wasn't racist because "races are Negro, white Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian".

When Moore defeated odd in the primary, Trump quickly backed Moore and essentially disavowed his support of unusual, deleting his tweets about the latter. "Remember Alabama. Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!"

"Tomorrow, West Virginia will send the swamp a message - no one, and I mean no one, will tell us how to vote", he continued. "I've never used a race word". "In the Senate, it's unbelievable how much more the Democrats are able to put aside their differences", said O'Connell.

The exorbitantly wealthy white-collar criminal - who is trying to steal a nomination from career GOP politicians on the strength of his media exposure and the virulence of his racism - also observed, "As some have said, I am Trumpier than Trump, and this morning proves it'".

In a debate last Wednesday, he defended his comments, saying that it was exactly like if someone had referred to him - Blankenship - as an "American-person". "The president hasn't been involved in this race, but we are looking forward to him endorsing us after we win the primary".
