Trump Jr. urges vote against GOP Senate candidate 'No more fumbles like Alabama'

"Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for China people", Blankenship said in the ad, reportedly set to air on TV in West Virginia starting Friday.

"I think that basically I've been in the business world, instead of the government world".

As of mid-April, Blankenship has put $3.5 million of his own money into the campaign, has only received $2,000 in campaign checks and has spent $2.8 million, according to federal campaign finance disclosures. "Some people are Korean-persons, some people are African-persons - it's not any slander there".

McConnell's former chief of staff and campaign manager Josh Holmes quickly responded to Blankenship's shocking charges.

For weeks, Morrisey aimed almost all of his strikes at the primary competitor, GOP Rep. Evan Jenkins, however re focused his interest on Blankenship this weekend, using the press conference Sunday as well as also a robo-call Saturday.

Jenkins pointed out this is not Morrisey's first attempt at running for Congress, noting a failed 2000 attempt in his native New Jersey and a Morrisey campaign advertisement saying he'd fight anyone who goes against New Jersey values. "They are calling me a bigot, a moron, a despicable character, and mentally ill". "I've never used a race word". "I'd rather be in China, but the hard work and the effort and the creativity that we put into running businesses in the USA would be much more valuable in other places". The "cocaine" nickname is reportedly in reference to a 2014 report that drugs were found aboard a shipping vessel owned by Chao's family.

The ship came from the maritime company founded by Chao's father, James Chao, who emigrated from Taiwan. We have worked closely with the President. The image of Morrisey was taken from a picture of him shaking hands with President Donald Trump.

"I am not just ready to help President Trump drain the swamp— I am the only candidate that is capable of doing so". Joe Manchin, suggesting that Blankenship is a liability for Republicans.

A recent Fox News poll showed Blankenship trailing behind leading candidates Rep. Evan Jenkins and Attorney General Patrick Morrissey. And he's even said that he might emigrate to China because they have lower regulations.

Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted Thursday that he thinks a Blankenship nomination guarantees another Manchin term.
