If Blankenship wins the primary, u can write WV off as a GOP gain.
Lot of anger in the state over fake republicanism. Some think Blankenship as their only choice. The theme used in Alabama...required an enormous amount of cash in that last six weeks. I don’t see the DNC coming in with that kind of cash again anytime in 2018.
I guess everything I’ve heard about West Virginians is true?
Ouch! It is as if Roy Moore never happened. Hate to lose low hanging fruit Senate pickup because wrong guy nominated.
And how frustrating would that be. West Virginia has been becoming increasingly Republican in recent years. Hate to see Manchin get re-elected by default, because of a flawed GOP candidate.
WE can get snakebit so to speak, can’t we? Alabama is a strong Republican state too, yet Democrat Doug Jones won the special election there.
This says it all from the article:
“If Blankenship manages to win despite Trumps opposition, it will be a strong data point for Kentucky congressman Thomas Massies theory that many Republican primary voters are simply voting for the craziest son of a bitch in the race.
Didn’t DJT carry WV by something like 70-25? If so he should be getting behind someone who can actually win in November...and do it loudly.If we can’t win WV we’re in deep poop.
If Blankenship wins the WV GOP primary, WV will be a “sinking ship” for the Republicans. Are West Virginians that stupid? Oh, wait a minute ... Wasn’t this the home of KKK Grand Klegal, Senator Robert Byrd?
The Rats are going cross over try to put Blankenship on top dont let them WV!
I would agree.
Yep.....Blankenship is bad news...
I wont insult West Virginians, but I am curious. Does WV have open primaries? If so, the Dems may throw the primary to Blankenship as he is least likely to win in November against Manchin.
Don Blankenship is a mass murderer. They will be building snowmen in the hot stinky bad place before I would support that man. He is so vile I would seriously consider supporting a Dimocrat over him.
“The theme used in Alabama...required an enormous amount of cash in that last six weeks.”
I wonder how much the Hussein Head trolls here made.
How much of this is cross over Dems polling for the guy they think they can beat?
You can bet Manchin is supporting Blankenship now.
Republicans have a way of devouring each other. Both Alabama and West Va are conservative states but somehow the republican party will find a way to lose.
IF THE REPUBLICANS LOSE THIS STATE, Ronna Romney McDaniel NEEDS TO BE FORCED OUT AS CHAIRWOMAN FOR THE PARTY. Enough is enough.
Doubt these polls really exists. It looks like the usual Fake Media propaganda trying to puff up the GOP candidate they think they can beat.
Thanks. Not good news.
