Republicans vow to show OH still a 'Trump state'

Breaking: Surprising winner announced in highly contested West Virginia GOP primary Midterm matchups set after Republican primary races in 4 states
Leonard Rios | 11 May, 2018, 05:10

Those enthusiastic voters also say by a 10-point margin that the nation would be better off with Democrats in control of Congress than Republicans.

President Donald Trump called Don Blankenship after pushing for the one-time candidate's loss in the West Virginia Republican Senate primary, Politico is reporting.

West Virginia coal baron and convicted criminal Don Blankenship spent nearly $3 million - almost entirely from his own pocket - only to lose the state's GOP primary to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who raised about half as much.

While that's not unusual, not only does Capito regularly work with her West Virginia counterpart, Democrat Joe Manchin, on a number of issues, they're long-time friends.

Brown, the Democratic incumbent, has always been tough on trade, and he praised Trump's moves this year to raise tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. He'll face Republican Jim Renacci in the general election.

Vice President Mike Pence's older brother Greg Pence, meanwhile, won the Republican nomination in Indiana's 6th District.

Is Ohio a Trump state?

Ohio Republicans are pledging to show that the swing state is still Trump country, and the president is cheering them on while getting return fire on Twitter from a Barack Obama appointee seeking the state's governorship. After spending more than two decades in the US Army Airborne, with repeated tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ojeda became an Army recruiter based in Beckley before winning a seat in the State Senate in 2016.

The U.S., which is one of the kingdom's most important military suppliers, has backed the coalition with logistical support. OPEC meets next in June, where it is widely expected to continue with the supply cuts until the end of 2018.

Even as Blankenship rebuffed Trump's criticism this week, he described himself as "Trumpier than Trump" and played up his outsider credentials.

Renacci, who was the front-runner for the Republican nomination headed into Tuesday's vote, will face Democratic Sen. Many in the GOP, including President Trump, drew comparisons between Blankenship and Judge Roy Moore, who lost a reliably Republican senate seat to Doug Jones (D), largely owing to allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls. It should be recognized that the Republian nominees selected by voters this past Tuesday are not extremists or radicals, but commonsense conservatives determined to do the right thing.

The left-ward movement of workers found a more genuine expression in the struggle waged by teachers and other school workers against the state government, despite the sabotage of the teachers' unions and the state Democratic Party establishment.

In the OH governor's race, Cordray will face state Attorney General Mike DeWine, who defeated Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor for the Republican nomination.

Morrisey also must deal with another disparity — 43 percent of West Virginia voters are registered Democrats, compared to 32 percent registered Republicans. (Chao received a sizable amount of money after her mother's death, in 2007.) From these familial details, Blankenship reasoned that McConnell is soft on China-a theory advanced by Peter Schweizer, the author of the controversial "Clinton Cash", in his new book, "Secret Empires". "I don't know of anything positive I would say to him, so I'm being nice about it and not calling him".

Republican leaders had anxious that a win by Blankenship would cost them a plum shot at defeating Sen. Evan Jenkins and former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship on Tuesday, barely.

"Like I said, we have had our differences". Currently, the split is 51 Republicans to 47 Democrats.

"I, I don't know". He was released a year ago Thursday.
