The Blankenship momentum was never real in West Virginia

The Blankenship momentum was never real in West Virginia

Perhaps nothing summed up the environment more than Richard Cordray's romp to the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Ohio. Cordray served as the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Rep. Jim Renacci bucked the trend in OH, winning the GOP Senate nomination.

Maryland's own Republican primary is next month. Joe Donnelly of IN won renomination uncontested, and Sen.

Watch out, Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly - you have a new Republican coming for your seat in November.

Neil Cavuto said Blankenship praised Manchin at times in the past and has not been willing to support the nominee Morrisey.

The most bitter primaries are happening in House races, where a flood of candidates have been motivated by the energy of liberal protests against Trump.

"Well I think that what he wants to show is that he's an independent". That mission was to bring a much-needed Republican vote to the Senate, and you all have done me proud.

Mid-term elections are typically hard for the party in power, and this year's is no exception.

Four-term Republican state Rep. Robert Sprague, of Findlay, won the GOP primary for state treasurer over former Ashtabula County Auditor Sandra O'Brien.

Two Republican congressmen from IN also wanted a promotion to the Senate. The President weighed in a few days later and Blankenship went on to lose the race to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. Republicans say that's evidence there's not a blue wave in Ohio.

In most cases, the Republican candidates on the ballot Tuesday had competed to be seen as the most conservative, the most anti-Washington and the most loyal to the Republican president. "Ohio is going to move forward with the Trump agenda, and OH is going to get anybody who is an obstacle, including Sen". John Cornyn (R-Texas), the No. 2 GOP leader.

Manchin told supporters at his Charleston campaign headquarters that the nation has "unfinished business" on affordable health care, infrastructure, taking care of veterans and helping working-class Americans like his state's coal workers. After a brutal Republican primary battle with five other candidates Patrick Morrisey is the nominee for the U.S. Senate. Jenkins came in second, earning 35,286 votes, or 28.02 percent, followed by Blankenship, who tallied 25,403 votes, or 20.17 percent.

Morrisey deflected criticism of his past lobbying ties to the pharmaceutical industry and his roots in New Jersey, where he lost a 2000 congressional race. Luke Messer and Todd Rokita, as creatures of Washington.

But Blankenship won't be going away quietly, Thomas said. Chris Van Hollen (Md.), chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

"If it makes sense for West Virginia, makes sense to me, I vote for it, doesn't matter whether it's Democrat or Republican", Manchin said. They need to flip some two dozen GOP-held seats for a majority.

Manchin added that he is one Democrat who will pledge to support Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel.

Gun policy, an issue that spiked in salience for voters following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, in mid-February, has remained a top issue, with 76% calling it extremely or very important to their vote this fall, about the same as the 78% who said so then.
