WEST VIRGINIA: Blankenship Finishes In Last Place

CNN reports:

Ex-convict and coal baron Don Blankenship has lost his bid for the Republican Senate nomination in West Virginia, CNN projects. CNN projects he will place third, behind Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and Rep. Evan Jenkins, in the race to take on Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in the fall. The political world was watching to see how Blankenship would fare after launching a series of racial broadsides at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, McConnell’s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and her parents. He blasted “Cocaine Mitch” and McConnell’s “China family.”
