Blankenship Out For Blood: Making Sure Rival 'Won't Become Senator'

Trump implored Republicans in West Virginia not to vote for Donald Blankenship. Bloomberg’s Sahil Kapur reports

The stakes are high as the GOP braces for potential major losses this fall. He'll try to hold onto his seat in a state that gave Republican President Donald Trump his largest margin of victory in 2016. He added: "Tremendous voter energy and excitement, and all candidates are those who have a great chance of winning in November".

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey claimed the nomination instead.

The day's slate of early season elections tested the limits of the anti-establishment fervor that has defined the Trump era. Joe Manchin's general election challenger.

The fundraising disparity was equally remarkable: Manchin raised $5 million and spent almost $1.4 million on the primary campaign, compared to only $184,000 for Swearengin, an accounting clerk from a coal-mining family in southern West Virginia.

President Trump reportedly called Blankenship after his loss, speaking only briefly but politely with the former candidate.

Four-term Republican state Rep. Robert Sprague, of Findlay, won the GOP primary for state treasurer over former Ashtabula County Auditor Sandra O'Brien.

"The people who support right to work, they're out working".

Karnes on Tuesday night claimed an influx of the "far left" voted against him in the primary. Control of Congress is at stake in addition to state governments across the nation. If the newly energized progressive candidates were challenging Democrats in safe seats, their actions would probably not lose the seat for the Democrats but they could weaken the incumbent and prompt the need to put more resources into what was a safe district. Robert C. Byrd and Jay Rockefeller, the Mountain State is now one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. Braun will challenge Democratic Sen.

He could not beat him, and he is sure not going to join him.

Greg Pence, Vice President Mike Pence brother, is the projected victor of Indiana's 6th District GOP primary. Greg Pence is a Marine veteran and owner of two antique malls who once ran the now-bankrupt chain of Tobacco Road convenience stores. He will be a heavy favorite to win the district, now held by Messer, in November.

Former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray is projected to win Ohio's Democratic gubernatorial primary, according to NBC.

Trump, who scored a decisive victory in OH over Hillary Clinton in 2016 after Obama carried the state twice, sent a congratulatory Tweet for DeWine, a former USA senator.

Rep. Jim Renacci won the nomination with $2 per vote. Troy Balderson won the crowded Republican primary.

Brown, the Democratic incumbent, has always been tough on trade, and he praised Trump's moves to raise tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. It spent just $47,000 attacking Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, a former lobbyist and transplant from New Jersey, who is now the Republican nominee.

A bright spot for Republicans in swing-state Ohio: GOP turnout was considerably stronger than Democratic voting in the open governor's race.

Primary voters on Tuesday picked a congressman backed by President Donald Trump to be the GOP nominee against Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown in November.

With all precincts reporting, Morrisey commanded almost 35 percent of the vote, compared to more than 29 percent for Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., and about 20 percent for former Massey Energy Co.

(Evan Jenkins, another Republican congressman also lost in West Virginia.) All three candidates tried to claim Mr Trump's mantle while emulating his style, lambasting each other with derisive nicknames: "Lyin' Todd" for Mr Rokita, who falsely implied that Mr Trump had endorsed him; "Missing Messer" for the congressman who allegedly spends more time in the Washington area than in; and "Tax Hike Mike" for Mr Braun, who voted to raise the gas tax when he was a state legislator.

Fears about nominating a candidate outside the mainstream escalated in recent weeks, particularly in West Virginia.
