Fox News Calls Out Rep. Evan Jenkins on His ‘Phony’ Campaign Ad Jenkins for Senate by Sean Moran30 Apr 20180 30 Apr 2018 30 Apr 2018

The West Virginia Republican primary is on May 8.

"His record is impeccable on abortion and guns, and everything else".

During a Fox News GOP primary debate, Blankenship said his earlier use of the term "wealthy Chinaperson" to describe the father of McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, is not racist.

"I'll get elected on my own merits", Blankenship says.

During Tuesday night's debate, Blankenship repeated his claim that McConnell had "conflicts of interest with China". Joe Manchin (D-WV), hit back at his opponent on Twitter last week, calling him a "liar" and demanding "accountability". Progressive-leaning The Nation reported that 90 pounds of cocaine had been discovered aboard a vessel owned by the Foremost Group, founded and owned by McConnell's father-in-law, James Chao.

"His commitment to protecting the sanctity of life is unquestionable and is the only candidate I trust to represent our values in the U.S. Senate", said Kelli Sobonya, assistant majority whip in the West Virginia House of Delegates and candidate for Cabell County Commission who will serve as the chair of the Jenkins for Senate Pro-Life Coalition.

In fact, according to Morning Consult's latest poll of the most popular and unpopular senators, McConnell topped the list of unpopular Senate lawmakers.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Who would be the better friend to President Donald Trump?

In a Tuesday campaign press release Blankenship said: "McConnell and his family have extensive ties to China". Since 2000 the Republican presidential nominee has carried the state.

Morrisey, a long-time Clinton critic, is seen shaking hands with the 2016 Democratic candidate in a photoshopped image used in one of Jenkins' recent campaign advertisements.

"What they've said he's actually done (in the criminal case), I don't believe none of that", 21-year-old coal mechanic Zack Ball said while grabbing a bite to eat in the Boone County coal community of Danville.

Don Blankenship Pledges To Get Rid of "Cocaine Mitch" Now Blankenship is escalating the intra-party battle considerably. And then put me in prison.

Don Blankenship's surprisingly strong traction has establishment Republicans terrified that a tarnished conservative could trigger another political debacle as they struggle to maintain control of Congress.
