GOP Senate candidate: 'Chinaperson' isn't racist

The victor of the primary will face off against Democratic West Virginia Sen.

Many pundits said the race could determine which party controls the Senate next year.

When asked about Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian election interference, Blankenship, who has maintained his own innocence, provoked the loudest laugh of the night. Jenkins was a Democrat for 20 years before becoming a Republican in 2013.

Ivan Raiklin filed a lawsuit in federal court Tuesday against the Republican Party of Virginia and the state Board of Elections.

A recent Fox News poll showed Blankenship trailing behind leading candidates Rep. Evan Jenkins and Attorney General Patrick Morrissey.

"I'm up here with two guys that's never created a job", Blankenship, 68, told the audience in his soft drawl, as he promoted his former role as chief executive of Massey Energy. This refers to his allegation that federal regulators were responsible for the 2010 Upper Big Branch explosion that killed 29 miners, and led to his conviction and incarceration for conspiracy to violate mine safety standards. "They blew up the coal mines and then put me in prison".

The alignment with Trump was so effective that former White House adviser Steve Bannon anxious privately to colleagues that Trump might actually endorse the Democrat.

The latest GOP underdog and political rebel made clear he will take no orders from political heavyweights in Washington.

"I know that I was falsely imprisoned", he said, saying that some legal documents called "302s" were withheld from his defense team during his trial.

Morrisey accused Jenkins of having a liberal background and said his past stint as a Democrat should make voters wary.

Toward the end of the 30-second ad, Blankenship refers to the majority leader as "Cocaine Mitch" while talking about making children a priority.

The state has always been considered a prime pickup opportunity for Republicans, who hold a two-seat Senate majority that suddenly feels less secure given signs of Democratic momentum in Nevada, Arizona, Tennessee and elsewhere.

This isn't the first time Blankenship has taken aim at McConnell.

McConnell is married to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, whose father - James S.C. Chao - is the founder of The Foremost Group shipping and trading company. West Virginia deserves better than a fake-Republican.

Given that ultimate outsider Keith Judd got 41 percent of the vote against Obama in West Virginia's 2012 Democratic primary despite sitting in prison, "no possibility is beyond expectation", Rupp said.
