Trump says GOP had 'great night' in primaries

Don Blankenship addresses the media in 2015 after being found guilty of ignoring safety violations at a mine where 29 people died. He served a year in jail

Blankenship added in his letter that "Morrisey will likely lose the general election".

"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference".

In urging West Virginians to "remember Alabama", Trump referred to how GOP candidate Roy Moore, who faced allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenagers, lost a special Senate election past year in that largely Republican state.

Trump had intervened in the GOP primary race, tweeting several times that Blankenship could not beat Democratic incumbent Joe Manchin and urging voters to back State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey or Rep. Evan Jenkins.

Kroger paying $247M to license Ocado online home-delivery technology
Those fees will partly reduce Ocado's future fees from the deal, but should make its initial outlay more affordable. It marked the fourth such agreement that Ocado has struck with grocers worldwide in just six months.

The West Virginia result helped avert a potential political disaster for a GOP already bracing for major losses in the November midterm elections.

After a humiliating defeat in the GOP primary, Blankenship took to Facebook to compare himself to Trump for being under attack for decades.

In 2015, Blankenship, 69, was convicted of conspiring to violate safety rules at a mine he owned, where an explosion killed 29 miners in 2010. Throughout his bid, Blankenship published a series of advertisements targeting Republicans, notably Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Greg Thomas, campaign manager for failed West Virginia U.S. Senatorial candidate Don Blankenship, insisted that Blankenship will "make sure" his Republican rival will not become U.S. Senator Thursday.
