Mitch McConnell Claps Back at West Virginia Senate Candidate With 'Narcos' Meme

Mitch McConnell Claps Back at West Virginia Senate Candidate With 'Narcos' Meme

Tuesday's Democratic and Republican primary elections in four states-Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and North Carolina-confirmed the continued right-ward course in both major capitalist parties, which contrasts sharply to the growing militancy in the working class and the general alienation from both parties in the majority of the population.

Blankenship, the former Massey Energy CEO, came in third place in Tuesday's GOP Senate primary behind Morrisey and Congressman Evan Jenkins.

Accordingly, on Monday, Trump tweeted, "To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference". Sherrod Brown, "does not think the way we think. when it comes to borders, when it comes to so much", delivering a message that Republicans hope to hear frequently.

The GOP will likely funnel money into Morrisey's campaign as they could potentially flip Manchin's seat.

Trump's unpopularity in the suburbs and exurbs where Republicans have built their House majority has led GOP leaders to conclude that the lower chamber of Congress may be all but gone in November. If the 35-year-old Crooks wins against her Republican opponent in November, she will be the first Trump accuser to win elected office after Mr. Trump's ascendance to the presidency. And last Saturday, Trump was in OH, long the key electoral piece for any GOP presidential hopeful.

"If you'll remember in watching the 2016 elections returns early in the night ... made it seem that OH was going to be basically a 50-50 state, but then as Election Day votes came in, it was clear that Republicans had severely out-voted Democrats". Trump also won the state by 8 points in 2016.

Rockets, Warriors advance to Western Conference finals
Draymond Green helped steady the ship however with a fadeaway and a driving layup to restore the Warriors double-digit cushion. The seeds are flipped this time, after Houston finished the regular season with the league's best record.

Taking the reins as party leader, President Donald Trump is returning to his campaign roots with big-stage events targeting vulnerable Senate Democrats and mobilizing his most fervent supporters on behalf of Republicans. Trump now must decide how aggressively he'll back Morrisey over Manchin, who is one of Trump's only allies among Senate Democrats on many votes. Many in the GOP, including President Trump, drew comparisons between Blankenship and Judge Roy Moore, who lost a reliably Republican senate seat to Doug Jones (D), largely owing to allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls. This is only moving them away from the center where most Americans tend to gravitate, especially as those who voted for the president see their taxes lowered, American hostages returned from North Korea, and most importantly, the trust in votes cast fulfilled.

"There was only one truly conservative Republican West Virginian in the race, and that was Don Blankenship". Also like Trump, Blankenship has little patience for consistency. "I love your grit, your spirit, and I love our coal miners", the president said at an August 2, 2017, rally in Huntington.

It was certainly fun while it lasted, but it's time for us to shut it all down because the phrase "Mitch McConnell claps back..." is something that should never be written ever again.

Manchin ducked when asked if he'd accept a Blankenship endorsement, saying he'd have "no control" over that and hadn't talked to Blankenship recently. And a group allied with the national GOP, known as Mountain Families PAC, spent more than $1.2 million in attack ads against Blankenship. Currently, the split is 51 Republicans to 47 Democrats. I don't know what to call it don't vote for Tom tweed.

Mandel challenged Brown six years ago, which was a hard one for the incumbent.
