Manchin has big financial lead in race

Manchin has big financial lead in race”

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

"Cameras are lined up", Nachama Soloveichik added, laughing.

Manchin brought in about 70 percent of the Democratic primary vote, with 94 percent of precincts reporting. "I love your grit, your spirit, and I love our coal miners", the president said at an August 2, 2017, rally in Huntington. "These are tough guys". His primary opponent, Paula Jean Swearengin, got about 30 percent of the vote. 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.

"To the great people of West Virginia, we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference".

"It's going to be hard for him to do it", Rupp said. "I think the one thing he is going to make sure doesn't happen is that Patrick Morrisey becomes a USA senator", Thomas said. This district went for Donald Trump by 12 points in 2016, but Democrats hold a clear edge in enthusiasm at this stage of the race.

Blankenship was CEO of mine owner Massey Energy, whose Upper Big Branch mine in southern West Virginia exploded in April 2010. The blast killed 29 miners, and prosecutors argued that Blankenship was a micro-manager whose focus on production had led to safety violations.

California first USA state to require solar on new homes
The current standards offer a solar-only credit, allowing for a trade off between solar power and energy efficiency. In this tight housing market, any roof - with or without solar panels - is desirable, real estate agents say .

In fact, Blankenship proudly declared himself "Trumpier than Trump" and doubled down on the Trumpiest campaign tactics: unironic self-aggrandizement and unabashed disdain for the facts.

Manchin and Blankenship have had a complicated relationship - they were on cordial terms for much of Manchin's time as governor, and Manchin even flew on Blankenship's private plane to get back to West Virginia after the UBB Mine explosion since he couldn't get a direct flight.

West Virginia voter Wayne Sturgeon, who voted Tuesday for Blankenship, said he's a Trump supporter but was bothered by the White House intrusion. Blankenship was a distant third at 20 percent.

He said his future includes travel. And I am proud to stand before you and celebrate the hardworking people who are the absolute backbone of America.

"Don hasn't backed down from anybody in 68 years and he's not going to stop now", Thomas said.

"I'm gonna win either way tonight".

Alibaba's outlook tops estimates as spending drives growth
This is much higher than the current consensus estimates of revenue of US$54.50bn for the year ending March 31, 2019. Johanson Financial Advisors Inc.'s holdings in Alibaba Group were worth $2,233,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

Both parties view November's election as key to Senate control for the next two years.

Some in the party are concerned that the deep-pocketed Blankenship, who spent more than $2.5 million of his own funds in the primary, could wage an effort to damage Morrisey in the general election. Standing beside Morrisey and Jenkins, he called on voters to oust Manchin.

Among the 27 women nominees for the U.S. House in Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia, eight are black women, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University's "Gender Watch 2018".

Morrisey's official biography notes that be moved to West Virginia in 2006.

Fears about nominating a candidate outside the mainstream escalated in recent weeks, particularly in West Virginia.

"This is the challenge of our time", said Morrisey.

Atlanta Braves: Mike Soroka makes his Major League Baseball debut Tuesday
Jorge Soler unloaded a three-run homer off Brian Johnson in the 13th inning before the Royals hung on for a 7-6 win at Boston. Atlanta earned a 3-2 victory in Tuesday's opener and has outscored NY 22-14 in winning three of four meetings this season.

Some conservatives criticized Morrisey, a former lobbyist, during the GOP primary for his past representation of pharmaceutical companies and Planned Parenthood. At the same time, health care has dipped somewhat as a priority (from 83% important to 80%, with the most meaningful shift coming in the share who call it "extremely important", which dipped from 53% in February to 46% now), along with sexual harassment (from 64% to 58%) and the Russian Federation investigation (from 45% important in February to 40% now).
