West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship lost his primary race to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin.
Blankenship released a campaign video last week, in which he attacked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by calling him “Cocaine Mitch,” and his family, “China family.”
McConnell and his team made a meme from the Netflix show “Narcos” to take a dig at Blankenship.

No, really, he did.

On Tuesday night, West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship lost his primary race to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., in the November midterm elections. Manchin will now fight for his U.S. Senate seat against GOP nominee Patrick Morrisey, who’s the state’s current attorney general.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
