Trump Declares Republicans Had 'Great Night' in Primary Elections

Midterm matchups set after Republican primary races in 4 states

West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship says that President Donald Trump is getting bad advice and that he and others are falling for "fake news" in their decisions to oppose him in his hotly contested GOP primary.

"It worked out very well". Swearengin, who prominently displayed a photograph of herself with Bernie Sanders on her web site, won 48,302 votes, more than the 47,571 votes for Morrissey, the victor of the Republican primary, and almost double the 27,153 votes for Blankenship. "That's what we hoped for". Blankenship also referred to McConnell as "Cocaine Mitch" in reference to a report that cocaine was found aboard a ship that was owned by Chao's family.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have already scheduled a campaign event in IN on Thursday, indicating the priority the White House is putting on the in race - and their willingness to back whoever emerged from the primary. "You're going to have a senator that works for all west Virginians".

"Didn't seem to work out well, did it?"

Republican voters rejected ex-convict Don Blankenship in the U.S. Senate race in West Virginia on Tuesday, instead selecting Attorney General Patrick Morrisey to move on to the November general election to face incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin's general election challenger. "I'm pleased with the results".

While Swearingen - a progressive who had predicted that her challenge of Manchin would be a long shot - didn't win the Democratic primary, she gained more votes than any of the GOP candidates, including Morrisey.

Republican leaders had anxious that a win by Blankenship would cost them a plum shot at defeating Sen. Claire McCaskill after he mulled whether women actually get pregnant from "legitimate rape". Braun ran in Trump's mold, deriding the "swamp" and using his more traditional opponents as foils.




LAW: Yeah. We were very concerned that if he were the Republican nominee, we would not be competitive for that seat. Pretty simple, if you don't nominate somebody who's appealing to a broader audience, you can't win. They were primaries in a handful of states.

Trump Jr. has already been involved in elections this year.

Voters in IN will chose from three Republicans vying to take on Democratic Sen. Manchin, McConnell indicated he is hopeful. One thing I would note is that, you know, we've been reading so many stories about this enormous blue wave that is going to hit elections this fall that we've stopped looking at some of the contrary indications - the president's job approval slowly inching up, the generic ballot closing, the gap that we've had against - versus Democrats has been closing.

Jenkins and Morrisey went back and forth throughout the campaign, with Jenkins targeting Morrisey's ties to the pharmaceutical industry and previous residency in NY and New Jersey. "But I don't think I should do that".

"I think the enthusiasm is clearly on the side of people who want a different direction for this country and want a different direction for this state".

"While Patrick Morrisey was busy lobbying in the swamp and moving to West Virginia to win political office, I was serving in the WV National Guard and creating jobs in West Virginia", he said of the attorney general. Morrisey was eventually declared the victor; he'll face incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin in a contest that could decide control of the Senate.
