Blankenship Says He’ll Run Third-Party In West Virginia Senate Race
Talking Points Memo ^ | May 21, 2018 | Cameron Joseph

Don Blankenship isn’t done being a thorn in the side of the GOP.

The ex-con former coal baron announced Monday morning that he plans to run as the Constitution Party’s nominee for Senate, a move that could damage his former party’s chances at defeating Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) if he’s able to actually get on the ballot.

Some people just can’t put their egos aside for the good of the overall cause.

Sounds like WV needs a sore loser election law to prevent that. Hope he doesn’t run, he is nutso.

I take it that West Virginia doesn’t have a sore-loser law.

Who knows what deals the Democrats have cut with an ex-con.. Anything illegal and nefarious you can think of, and probably lots of things you haven't thought of, the Democrats are capable of.

Now we know he’s a Democrat. Who’s paying him? Stephen Halpern?

Blankenship's overall cause is Blankenship. This is his way of furthering that.

Well there goes a Senate seat we should have picked up. My opinion of this man is and has been unprintable for years.

This is one reason why I don’t donate money to political parties. If this @sshole had won the GOP primary he would have gotten lots of financial support from the party — and then proceeded to lose by a 65%-35% margin.

Exactly. Start hanging him around Manchin’s neck as a Democrat stooge immediately.

"Anthony Majestro, who practices elections law in Charleston, said he’s skeptical Blankenship would be able to convince a court to allow him onto the ballot."
