Don Blankenship is running on Trumpism in West Virginia. The GOP

Kucinich and Cordray are top candidates in the Ohio Democratic primary for governor

President Donald Trump implored Republicans in West Virginia not to vote for Donald Blankenship in that state's Republican primary on Tuesday, saying the candidate - a coal executive who served prison time for a safety violation that killed 29 miners - can't win the general election. This was going to be a tough race for the Republican candidate to begin with, Trippi added, but this primary fight means there's another unnecessary hurdle for the eventual candidate to overcome.

President Trump wrote,"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference". He also is running television ads targeting the Taiwanese heritage of McConnell's wife, U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

Now, 24 hours before West Virginians head to the polls, Donald Trump has finally put his thumb on the scales.

Blankenship's campaign argued that failing to disclose his finances was a non-issue.

"Trump and Don are two guys who have similar experiences and similar backgrounds and similar thoughts and similar ideas on where the country should be headed", said Greg Thomas, Blankenship's top aide.

In a Tweet Monday morning, Trump attempted to appeal to the sensibilities of West Virginia Republicans, who voted Trump into office in 2016 by almost 42 points.

James and the Cavaliers trailed by two at halftime, but won the third quarter 37-24 and never looked back. I know it's amusing to say, but I've had a lot of great looks and really uncharacteristic misses for me.

Morrisey, the attorney general, is also now accusing Blankenship of violating election laws, for failing to file a financial disclosure.

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 only public poll in the race released in late April showed Morrisey and Rep. Evan Jenkins leading Blankenship.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is under attack from Don Blankenship, a Republican running for Senate seat in West Virginia as an anti-establishment candidate. Blankenship is a former CEO of Massey Energy who until recently was serving a yearlong sentence for a misdemeanor conviction over his involvement in the deadliest United States mine explosion in four decades. Trump won the district by nearly 50 points in 2016, but the districts ancestrally blue roots and historic support for Manchin may create a competitive race in November. To that end, he has spouted weird conspiracy theories about "cocaine Mitch".

The candidates that emerge Tuesday night from bruising and expensive primary battles in Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia will provide answers to key questions about races crucial to determining which parties will control the U.S. House and Senate after November.

"I think the president is right here", McCarthy said.

"No more fumbles like Alabama", he also said in the tweet, while the outside group Mountain Families PAC continued to run a reported $1.3 million worth of TV ads against Blankenship. "Let's find the very best person in West Virginia and not have a situation where we can't compete in November". And yet, Trump is trying to stop him.
