Trump urges West Virginia voters to reject convicted coal baron

  • Kucinich and Cordray are top candidates in the Ohio Democratic primary for governor

Democrats are hoping strong candidates emerge in House races that could be key to determining their chances at retaking the lower chamber in 2018.

"Convicted criminal Don Blankenship didn't vote for President Trump and is a resident of Nevada, where he must report to his parole officer", he says in robocalls that started going out Saturday to potential voters. They are also childishly calling me "despicable" and 'mentally ill.' The war to drain the swamp and create jobs for West Virginia people has begun. It's unclear if that will work in a general election. "If you are someone that will stand with Trump, that is honestly more important". McConnell, who has opposed Blankenship's Senate run, is married to Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

Trump's opposition to Blankenship comes as West Virginia Republican insiders suggest that the recent spate of controversy surrounding the former coal mine owner has actually given him a bit of momentum heading into Tuesday's face-off against Rep. Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

The Weekly Standard reported two internal campaign polls Monday that show Blankenship leading his competitors.

Blankenship rejects the comparisons to Moore, which were amplified when the president urged voters Monday to "Remember Alabama". Blankenship is probably practicing some caution to not distance himself too far from Trump, considering the president won the state by 40 points in the 2016 election.

"There is only one candidate in this race - maybe in the history of candidates running for U.S. Senate, who has ever entertained the idea becoming Chinese". But when you can do a lot of ads over a long period of time, you may be able to convince people that your motivations are a little bit difference. The establishment is misinforming Trump, Blankenship told NBC Monday.

Trump is citing Alabama Republican Roy Moore, who lost a special Senate election after allegations of past sexual misconduct.

Everybody has an opinion about Don Blankenship in West Virginia - and they have for years.

Knicks reportedly hiring David Fizdale as head coach
In the days leading up to their final decision, the Knicks narrowed down their list to Fizdale, Blatt, and Budenholzer. Nonetheless, it is considered unlikely that James will choose to play for the Knicks after this season.

But the President's son does not share that sentiment and unleashed a series of tweets on Thursday urging West Virginia Republicans to vote against Blankenship. The deep-red state had not voted a Democrat into the Senate for 25 years. And yet, Trump is trying to stop him. Renacci is facing a primary challenge from businessman Mike Gibbons but is still expected to win the nomination to take on Sherrod Brown.

The most immediate opportunity for Democrats to pick up ground in the House is in Ohio's 12th Congressional District, where the resignation of GOP Rep.

Gibson guitar sales have declined greatly and the company's cost cutting attempts have not been adequate to save the business. It also sells studio monitors, headphones, turntables and other musical instruments.
