Trump urges West Virginia voters to reject convicted coal baron

Senator Elizabeth Warren questions Alex Azar during a Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on his nomination to be Health and Human Services secretary on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

Both tapped into raw nativism during their respective runs.

Blankenship's statement blamed "the establishment" for Trump's comment about him and said he would defeat Manchin.

Republicans have their sights set on the West Virginia Senate race, believing they can unseat Democrat Joe Manchin.

Morrisey, the attorney general, is also now accusing Blankenship of violating election laws, for failing to file a financial disclosure. "Remember Alabama. Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!" he posted. Joe Manchin of West Virginia. "They are showing that Blankenship and I are tied". Morrisey was in third place with only 19 percent.

But on the stump on Monday, Blankenship reportedly said the deadly explosion was caused by the U.S. government.

Blankenship has billed himself as an anti-establishment Republican in the vein of the unorthodox president, embracing the label that he is "Trumpier than Trump".

Trump is citing Alabama Republican Roy Moore, who lost a special Senate election after allegations of past sexual misconduct. In a different location, Mr. Blankenship dubbed Mr. McConnell "Cocaine Mitch" for far-fetched claims that a ship connected to Ms. Chao's daddy the moment smuggled medications.

Seen through that lens, Trump's decision to speak out - or tweet out - in opposition to Blankenship is wholly a reflection of the belief that the controversial coal baron can't beat Sen. The group, Mountain Families PAC, has spent over $1.3 million on TV commercials attacking Blankenship.

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. More ominously, Blankenship served a year in prison for failing to provide a safe working environment after a mine explosion killed 29 workers in 2010.

Morrisey also released a 30-second robo call on Saturday that slammed Blankenship and accused him at a press conference on Sunday of flouting ethics rules.

"This has really been narrowing down between Don Blankenship and myself". But when you can do a lot of ads over a long period of time, you may be able to convince people that your motivations are a little bit difference. Trump didn't endorse a candidate; instead he told GOP voters who NOT to vote for.

"Trump and Don are two guys who have similar experiences and similar backgrounds and similar thoughts and similar ideas on where the country should be headed", said Greg Thomas, Blankenship's top aide. Luther Strange - but when it became clear that Moore could well win despite the large number of women who came forward to say he had sought relationships with them when they were under age, Trump went all in for Moore.
