'Cocaine Mitch' McConnell trolls Don Blankenship after primary loss
Trump Tweets Against Blankenship in West Virginia

08 May, 2018

It's unclear, nevertheless, how powerful Mr. Trump's intervention will probably take a state where lots of ancient votes have been throw. Joe Manchin (D) in the fall.

Blankenship has centered his candidacy around attacking fellow Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, accusing him of undermining Trump.

"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference", tweeted Trump. McConnell, who has opposed Blankenship's Senate run, is married to Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

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.

When Moore defeated odd in the primary, Trump quickly backed Moore and essentially disavowed his support of unusual, deleting his tweets about the latter. Others include two-term U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

The Tweeter-in-Chief informed the West Virginia populace Monday morning that they should not vote Don Blankenship for Senate. "Tomorrow, West Virginia will send the swamp a message-no one, I mean no one, will tell us how to vote".

McConnell is married to Trump's Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, whose parents immigrated to the 1961 and are both USA citizens. No more fumbles like Alabama. "Let's put America first, find the very best person in West Virginia and not have a situation where we can't even compete in November".

"The problem isn't that Don Blankenship can't win a general election in West Virginia, it's that he shouldn't win a general election in West Virginia".

Trump's tweet referred to Roy Moore, an Alabama Republican accused of sexual misconduct who was upset a year ago in the US Senate election by Democrat Doug Jones.

Trump's tweet is a reminder that he believes, deeply, in the concept that winning isn't everything, it's the only thing. After the election result, Trump tried to distance himself from Moore by reverting back to his previous argument that odd would have won the general election. "As some have said, I am Trumpier than Trump and this morning proves it". In the Democratic race, former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray is leading, with an endorsement from Sen. But if the former coal baron somehow wins, it will show just how far off the deep end much of the GOP rank and file has gone in an era when the normal metrics of good and bad seem to have been reversed.

But that Mr. Trump would measure in the competition in any respect underscores how alarmed party officials are about Mr. Blankenship.

Whether Trump and McConnell's opposition hurts Blankenship will be revealed Tuesday at the polls.
