In Senate primaries, Republicans follow Trump's lead

In Senate primaries, Republicans follow Trump's lead”

Braun's win displayed the continued political appeal of outsiders who run against the establishment and the Washington status quo, much as Trump did in sweeping to the White House in 2016.

President Trump may play a big role in West Virginia's Senate election.

"The answer to that is we don't know yet", Mr. Thomas said.

In 2015, Blankenship, 69, was convicted of conspiring to violate safety rules at a mine he owned, where an explosion killed 29 miners in 2010.

Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell's campaign team takes a jab at a West Virginia Republican who just lost his primary race.

Manchin said he fondly remembers working with second-place finisher Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-Huntington) when Jenkins was a Democrat in Congress.

"And I have no doubt that people are going to get together and be unified and work together", said Melody Potter, West Virginia Republican Party Chairman.

"You have rightfully complained about fake news and the corrupt Obama-era Department of Justice (DOJ)", Blankenship wrote.

Closely-watched Republican primaries in four states ended Tuesday night, setting the stage for highly anticipated midterm showdowns with Democrats in November.

Indeed, a rough guide is that Democrats will pick up an additional three to four seats for every point they gain in the national vote.

Republicans turned out in greater numbers than Democrats in Tuesday's primary.

Those at Morrisey's campaign headquarters in the Eastern Panhandle were celebratory around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The World Socialist Web Site has highlighted the political significance of the emergence of an openly CIA-military wing of the Democratic Party, with dozens of candidates who come directly from the national security apparatus rather than from more traditional venues such as local and state government, business or legal circles.

Voters in North Carolina are choosing their parties' nominees for dozens of legislative and congressman primary races. That theme played out again during this year's primary campaign, when Manchin used the phrase "Washington sucks" in advertising and again in his nomination statement.

WV-03: State Sen. Richard Ojeda scored a convincing victory in the Democratic primary Tuesday night, receiving 52% of the vote against three challengers. Joe Manchin's seat. One of the candidates is Don Blankenship, who served prison time for a deadly mine accident. Vice President Mike Pence's brother Greg is hoping to get the Republican nod for an open congressional seat. Republicans say that's evidence there's not a blue wave in Ohio.

The Democratic contest was significant because Swearengin was opposing Manchin as a self-proclaimed progressive, calling for Medicare for all and professing support to the strike by 30,000 teachers and other education workers that shut down schools statewide for nine days in March. He will now face Mike DeWine in November to determine who will replace outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich.

The ad concludes: "Call Sen".

By 48% to 43%, registered voters say they would rather back a candidate who opposes Donald Trump than one who supports the President. The stakes are high as the GOP braces for potential major losses this fall.

Former Ohio State University football star Anthony Gonzalez won the Republican nomination to succeed Renacci in Ohio's U.S. House District 16 following a three-way contest in which state Rep. Christina Hagan aligned herself closely with Trump's agenda.

The retired coal executive was released from prison previous year for his role in a mine explosion that killed 29 men.
