Morrisey wins GOP West Virginia Senate primary

Morrisey wins GOP West Virginia Senate primary

A House Republican in West Virginia lost in his bid for the Senate nomination to a state attorney general who last decade was a pharmaceutical lobbyist from New Jersey. "And look, Donald Trump has an 84 percent approval rating in West Virginia among Republicans, and that hurt". Joe Donnelly in November. I just, with the terrible tragedies we have had, it's just - my heart still aches for all the families. That is what the Republican party today has morphed into.

Manchin said he and Blankenship "had our differences on the issues" but that people "cannot question Don's conservatism and being a Republican". "I think the one thing he is going to make sure doesn't happen is that Patrick Morrisey becomes a US senator", Thomas said.

Year of the women continued: Women have found success in the early primaries of 2018, with the trend continuing Tuesday: Nineteen open House Democratic primaries had at least one female candidate and a woman won in 16 of them. Trump Jr. believes that he can travel the country and help the Republican Party not just retain control of the House and Senate this year, but actually INCREASE their numbers in the midterm elections. Blankenship has yet to endorse Morrisey, who aggressively attacked him during the final days of the race.

An aide to the senator said Manchin was conveying that Morrisey is not really conservative and not really a West Virginian, two themes Manchin plans to hammer home to voters during the general election.

"You've given me the opportunity of a lifetime", Jenkins said to supporters gathered at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Barboursville on Tuesday night.

Renacci, who was the front-runner for the Republican nomination headed into Tuesday's vote, will face Democratic Sen.

It's Trump's Party: On Tuesday, not one Trump critic won a Republican primary.

"I think the president is going to be a huge ally in this race", he said in an interview.

"We have to get more Republicans in office", Trump said.

In fact, Blankenship proudly declared himself "Trumpier than Trump" and doubled down on the Trumpiest campaign tactics: unironic self-aggrandizement and unabashed disdain for the facts.

Morrisey will face Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, who is widely considered to be a weaker incumbent in the U.S. Senate.

Morrisey, Blankenship, and Jenkins emerged as frontrunners and kept that lead throughout the campaign. "Maybe he can come a couple more times before November". "I think if there was any single factor, based on polling at different times, the debate and all the things I saw, it was probably more likely President Trump's ... lack of endorsement". Joe Donnelly, a centrist Democrat who has been always been a top target of Republican strategists. He'll try to hold onto his seat in a state that gave Republican President Donald Trump his largest margin of victory in 2016.

Trump won West Virginia's five electoral votes so handily that he likely never had to step foot in the state again. Ted Cruz (R), and former representative Mike Espy has an open field to the Democratic Party's nomination in MS as Republicans are engaged in a bitter, ideological contest. And a group allied with the national GOP, known as Mountain Families PAC, had spent more than $1.2 million in attack ads against Blankenship.
