Blankenship Rebuffs the President: 'I am Trumpier Than Trump'

President Trump has urged voters to vote for either Rep. Evan Jenkins (middle) or Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (right.) Don Blankenship (left) insists he still has a chance to win the Republican primary despite Trump endorsing his opponents. "As some have said, I am Trumpier than Trump and this morning proves it".

"Neither of my opponents can beat Joe Manchin without my support, but I will beat Joe Manchin even without the support of the establishment", Blankenship said.

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

"The fake news is also pretending to be offended by the use of my words, 'China people, '" says Blankenship.

"I think it could be misunderstood - people love Trump's policies and his commitment to West Virginia, they don't necessarily love individuals". Problem is, Don Blankenship, now running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State.No way! "Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!"

Trump, seeking to tap into nativist sentiment across the country, kicked off his 2016 campaign with harsh rhetoric on Mexican immigrations to the United States, labeling undocumented immigrants as "rapists" who are "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime". In 2012, faced with a almost impossible re-election in a red state, McCaskill operated a secret campaign on behalf of Tea Party candidate Todd Akin in the primary, knowing he would be easier to beat than establishment candidate John Brunner.

Also worrying senior Republicans is the fact that Jenkins and Morrisey spent the final stretch of the race savaging each other in debates and TV commercials, a dynamic that damaged both of them and could create an opening for Blankenship. He served a year in prison after 29 miners died in the 2010 Upper Big Branch Mine disaster. While doing so, Mitch has gotten rich.

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.

Connecticut Woman Gets 132-Pound Ovarian Tumor Removed In 5-Hour Surgery
It was putting pressure on her major blood vessels, which complicated an already hard five-hour surgery. These tumors tend to be larger than other tumors, but this tumor was one of the largest ever removed.

The situation strikes a similar chord to Roy Moore's successful Alabama senatorial primary campaign against incumbent Luther Strange and ultimate defeat to Democratic candidate Doug Jones last December.

"I thought West Virginians would see through his campaign", Morrissey admitted, arguing he is running a "misleading campaign".

Like Trump, Blankenship has also taken to labeling his political enemies, calling McConnell "Cocaine Mitch" in a recent ad.

"No more fumbles like Alabama", he said.

"No way!" Trump said in his tweet.

"Well, it surprised me", Blankenship told Fox News about the President's tweet. Should the Mr. Blankenship however win despite the intervention it would be exceptionally uncomfortable to Mr. Trump.

The Republican president maintains a strong approval rating in West Virginia at 61 points, according to March polling from Morning Consult.
