Morrisey Defeats Controversial Candidate Blankenship in West Virginia Senate Primary

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey won the state’s GOP Senate primary Tuesday over Rep. Evan Jenkins and the controversial former coal magnate and ex-convict Don Blankenship.


Blankenship ran a highly offensive campaign ad in which he launched racial attacks on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and referred to the Senate Majority Leader as “Cocaine Mitch.”

Blankenship, who was convicted in 2015 of conspiring to violate mine standards, was released from custody just a year ago. After a 2010 mining explosion killed 29 people, Blankenship's company was found to have violated federal safety regulations.

President Trump encouraged voters not to vote for Blankenship who, he said, “can’t win the General Election in your State...No way!”


Blankenship conceded the primary to Morrisey late Tuesday evening.

The official account of Mitch McConnell for Senate had a message for Blankenship.
