GOP Rep. Jim Renacci is a top GOP candidate in Ohio in Republicans’ bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown
"West Virginia voters should remember that my enemies are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and my opponents would not even be running as Republicans had I not resurrected the Republican Party in West Virginia", Blankenshipsaid.
Republican leadership was outraged. Some polls have shown increasing support for Don Blankenship. "The establishment has sent millions of our jobs to China people and left million of West Virginia people to fend for themselves".
In Indiana there are a number of interesting races, including six Democrats running in the 2nd Congressional District, the appearance of Vice President Mike Pence's brother in the GOP race for the 6th Congressional District, and another promising pick-up opportunity for the Republican who comes out on top in the primary to take on Sen.
The 68-year-old Blankenship, former CEO at Massey Energy, served a one-year prison term on a misdemeanor conviction for conspiring to violate federal mine safety standards at Massey's Upper Big Branch Mine, where 29 miners were killed in a 2010 explosion. "I've never used a race word".
Trump felt otherwise when he said in a tweet that Blankenship would lose the general election to Manchin.
In reply, Blankenship Monday also reminded voters of that Alabama race and the fact that Trump endorsed Moore.
"Problem is, Don Blankenship, now running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State", the President said.
That hasn't stopped Blankenship from using Trump to help his case.
Taking a page from Trump's 2016 playbook, Blankenship has talked about conspiracy theories, tried to revamp his past, has given his political opponents nicknames like "Little Joe" and went full throttle against Washington, D.C. Strategists point to the recent Fox News debate, where they say he came across as likable and even amusing after being painted as villain in political ads. "I don't see this insinuation by the press that there's something racist about saying 'Chinaperson, '" he said during a debate.
There's a similar situation playing out in a special congressional election in Ohio.
Trump's tweet on Blankenship starkly reveals both of those character traits. "All the ingredients are there for Blankenship to win-anti-Washington/anti-McConnell rhetoric and a lot of money while the other guys attack each other", the strategist said.
Trump's tweet is a reminder that he believes, deeply, in the concept that winning isn't everything, it's the only thing. "But it's not an inconsiderable concern".
