President Trump weighs in on W. Va. Senate race

Shown here are maps and campaign signs at Republican headquarters in Wadsworth Ohio

In a tweet Monday, Trump urged West Virginia voters to oppose the former coal executive in Tuesday's primary.

Blankenship is running against Rep. Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. Problem is, Don Blankenship, now running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State.No way!

Trump's run was also defined by a host of conspiracy theories, from raising false questions about Ted Cruz's father being tied to President John F. Kennedy's death to repeatedly questioning President Barack Obama's birth certificate to besmirching Muslims by suggesting they were cheering in New Jersey on September 11.

Blankenship's push for one of West Virginia's Senate seats has hit a number of hurdles, with the most recent being Trump's move to dissociate from the ex-con. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., in the general election this fall. "His name is ex-convict Don Blankenship", the statement from SLF spokesman Chris Pack read.

"The establishment is misinforming him because they do not want me to be in the U.S. Senate and promote the President's agenda", he continued.

In this campaign ad Blankenship uses the phrase "China people" and refers to the family of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, who was born in Taiwan and is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, his "China family".

"We don't think that even President Trump can stop it", Blankenship told Fox News. "We have to make sure that doesn't happen", Morrisey said.

Coal miners are an influential political constituency in West Virginia and Trump's White House victory came amid promises to revive the ailing coal industry. Joe Manchin in November.

Blankenship, who was also making final campaign appearances on Tuesday, predicted during his own appearance on "Talkline" today that Trump's tweet won't have a major impact.

O'Connell, who worked on John McCain's presidential campaign, said he believes that if Blankenship loses the primary this Tuesday, the race is the Republicans' to win. He said "the establishment" has influenced the president.

He remains on supervised release.

"The President... doesn't know me and he doesn't know how flawed my two main opponents are in this primary", the candidate opined. He won the state in the 2016 election by 42 percentage points.

- Another of the candidates for U.S. Senate, truck driver and veteran Jack Newbrough, announced on "Talkline" that he supports Blankenship.

"I think he would follow in the exact same footsteps as our president", Newbrough said.

"I thought West Virginians would see through his campaign", Morrissey admitted, arguing he is running a "misleading campaign". Trump wrote on the social media platform.

"Twenty-six percent can win this race". "I mean, he recommended that people vote for a guy that was basically accused of pedophilia in Alabama".
