Don Blankenship Reminds Voters That Trump Got It Wrong On Roy Moore

Shown here are maps and campaign signs at Republican headquarters in Wadsworth Ohio

Will West Virginia turn into another Alabama, in which Republicans lose a potential Senate seat thanks to a bad primary outcome tomorrow?

Don Blankenship said on Monday that he is "Trumpier than Trump" in response to a tweet from the president urging West Virginians to support the GOP Senate candidate's primary opponents. No way! Remember Alabama.

He also referenced the failed U.S. Senate bid of Roy Moore in a December Alabama special election. "Problem is, Don Blankenship, now running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State ..."

But the President's son does not share that sentiment and unleashed a series of tweets on Thursday urging West Virginia Republicans to vote against Blankenship. 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. Should the Mr. Blankenship however win despite the intervention it would be exceptionally uncomfortable to Mr. Trump.

Blankenship responds to Trump: "The President... doesn't know me and he doesn't know how flawed my two main opponents are in this primary".

Don Blankenship: "Hi. I'm Don Blankenship, candidate for U.S. Senate, and I approve this message".

"Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for China people, while doing so, Mitch has gotten rich", Blankenship says in the ad. "In fact, his China family has given him tens of millions of dollars. The establishment needs to stand down in this race, and I will beat Manchin in the fall".

"Todd Rokita puts on a MAGA hat, he runs around the state, but on the tough votes...he's against President Trump", GOP Rep. Luke Messer said of his Republican House colleague Rokita in a debate last month.

Meanwhile, Republicans were panicking over the weekend over polling that showed Blankenship had taken a slight lead over Jenkins and Morrisey.

Former coal tycoon Don Blankenship believes President Donald Trump is not supporting his campaign for Senate because the president is too busy to notice that he is more Trump than Trump. Allahpundit wrote about the coal mogul's obsession with "Cocaine Mitch" McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao's family of "China people", which will make for hilarious general-election campaign fodder.

West Virginia was considered a Democratic stronghold during the 20th century. It's the number one issue", said Leah Askarinam, a reporter, and analyst at Inside Elections, a nonpartisan outlet that analyzes House, Senate, gubernatorial and presidential campaigns, "These candidates have spent the last several months tying themselves as closely as possible to the president.
