Rich GOP Men and Democratic Women Win Big in First Major Primaries

A House Republican in West Virginia lost in his bid for the Senate nomination to a state attorney general who last decade was a pharmaceutical lobbyist from New Jersey.

Patrick Morrisey is President Donald Trump's new man in West Virginia. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia won by 40 percentage points. "Even what happened just yesterday, I'd also like to recognize president Trump for weighing in on this race". "What was proven tonight is Don Blankenship doesn't have any place in the conservative wing of the Republican Party".

Manchin said he and Blankenship "had our differences on the issues" but that people "cannot question Don's conservatism and being a Republican".

Tuesday's primaries in four predominantly Republican states left Democrats with a big cash advantage and a handful of new openings. Last week, The Weekly Standard reported that, according to internal polls, Blankenship was leading the two other Republican candidates in the primary. 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.

Most alarming for Republicans was Rep. Robert Pittenger's defeat in North Carolina, which may cost them a seat in the general election.

When I first read the phrase "China people", I was immediately put in mind of the "mole people" of urban legend, the tribes of homeless outcasts who were said to live in cavernous spaces beneath our cities.

Morrisey will now face Democratic Sen. That mission was to bring a much-needed Republican vote to the Senate, and you all have done me proud.

Trump made an 11th-hour appeal to West Virginia voters to block Blankenship from winning the party's nomination.

They defended well for the most part, with Spurs limited to just a handful of chances, and attacked with intensity. However, Spurs held strong and Kane, like so often, proved to be the hero, netting in the 50th minute.

"I would like to thank President Trump, your tweet was huge", said Morrisey. Those enthusiastic voters also say by a 10-point margin that the nation would be better off with Democrats in control of Congress than Republicans.

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.

National Republicans were terrified that West Virginia Republicans might nominate a convicted ex-coal executive for the Senate and give up an opportunity to unseat Democratic Sen. "I'd like you to come back as many times as you can between now and November".

After the West Virginia election results, McConnell's Senate campaign team tweeted a sarcastic photo directed at Blankenship's failed campaign.

Franklin County Recorder Danny O'Connor won a crowded Democratic primary for the central OH congressional seat formerly held by Republican Pat Tiberi, while state Sen.

But Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper says there was more Democratic participation this year than in the 2016 primary.

Rader, one of three women on the battle lines in the fight against the opioid epidemic in West Virginia, had joined Manchin as his guest at January's State of the Union. "So I think he'll be really involved", said Tom Susman. Ted Cruz (R), and former representative Mike Espy has an open field to the Democratic Party's nomination in MS as Republicans are engaged in a bitter, ideological contest.

But Renacci spent less than $1 million to dispense with his two major GOP rivals, leaving him with a war chest of $4.2 million as his campaign gears up for the November ballot.
