Don Blankenship Just Lost

Don Blankenship Just Lost

In both cases, Trump's party appears to have avoided the missteps that doomed candidates in high-profile Senate races in the past.

He asked Manchin if he would want the controversial Blankenship's support.

Franklin County Recorder Danny O'Connor won a crowded Democratic primary for the central OH congressional seat formerly held by Republican Pat Tiberi, while state Sen.

The left-ward movement of workers found a more genuine expression in the struggle waged by teachers and other school workers against the state government, despite the sabotage of the teachers' unions and the state Democratic Party establishment. He and former University of Cincinnati board chairman Rob Richardson Jr., a Democrat, will face off in November for the seat held by term-limited GOP Treasurer Josh Mandel.

All three fought to paint themselves as being strong Trump supporters. Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, in a costly primary race. The district, located outside of Toledo, voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012, but flipped for Trump in 2016. "So I think he'll be really involved", said Tom Susman. More than 8 in 10 voters (84%) say the economy will be "extremely" or "very" important to their votes, while 64% say the same of the President. In Indiana, Vice President Mike Pence's brother Greg Pence won the Republican primary for a congressional seat in eastern Indiana.

Pence is a Marine veteran and owner of two antique malls who once ran the now-bankrupt chain of Tobacco Road convenience stores.

"Don Blankenship is just not going to win in November".

In Ohio, the governor's race was the main attraction. Overall, more Democrats voted than Republicans.

"Hopefully, what Trump's done can be undone", Whipple said. That makes the seat critical for both parties.

"Democrats are here. But it nearly felt like we didn't know that we were out there", Crooks said earlier this year when she announced her campaign.

And on the local level, a woman who accused Trump of sexually harassing her more than a decade ago claimed the Democratic nomination in a race to represent an area southeast of Toledo in the state House of Representatives.

Incumbent Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC) lost the primary to Southern Baptist Rev. Mark Harris, 48.5% to 46.2%. He admitted IN is "a Republican state, but it's hard to beat an incumbent". That has spurred them to wage an urgent campaign to hold the Senate to protect Trump and his agenda next year.

The head of the Senate Republican campaign arm had highlighted Blankenship's criminal history.

Neymar-Real Madrid in talks for £227m transfer deal — Sports Business
But despite PSG's dominance domestically, Neymar has been a frustrated figure and he has been on the sidelines for the last three months after suffering a serious ankle injury.

It marked a good night for the GOP establishment, yet a bad night for sitting Republican members of the House.

Manchin said he and Blankenship "had our differences on the issues" but that people "cannot question Don's conservatism and being a Republican".

He also closed his concession speech by urging people to stay and drink the alcohol he had already purchased.

No matter Tuesday's victor, Trump's team was keeping pressure on Manchin.

"This is the challenge of our time", said Morrisey.

Renacci started out running for governor but said he switched to the Senate race with White House encouragement after Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel withdrew for personal reasons.

Republican leaders had anxious that a win by Blankenship would cost them a plum shot at defeating Sen. Luther Strange for the Alabama seat vacated by Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions.

Trump and his party leaders have been more united against Blankenship in recent weeks. Blankenship had dubbed McConnell "Cocaine Mitch" and created a firestorm when he referred to the Kentucky senator's father-in-law as a "Chinaperson" and later defended his use of the racist term. And a group allied with the national GOP, known as Mountain Families PAC, spent more than $1.2 million in attack ads against Blankenship.

Trump has already come out against Blankenship, tweeting on Monday that there is "no way" the candidate - who spent a year in prison over safety violations after an explosion at his company's mine killed 29 workers - can win in November.

Blankenship retired eight months later, was sentenced to a year in prison for conspiring to break mine safety laws, a misdemeanor, and served a year in a California prison. McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, is of Chinese descent.

Mr. Blankenship claimed to be "Trumpier than Trump" because of his outsider status.

Blankenship said he doesn't believe the ad cost him votes, "because unlike the media, I think West Virginians understand that "China people" is not different than 'Appalachia people, ' no different than 'West Virginia people'".
