Morrisey will face Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, who is widely considered to be a weaker incumbent in the U.S. Senate.

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

"Cameras are lined up", Nachama Soloveichik added, laughing. But the polls were wrong, and Morrisey coasted to a rather easy win with 35 percent of the vote. "These are tough guys".

Vice President Mike Pence's older brother Greg Pence, meanwhile, won the Republican nomination in Indiana's 6th District.

While U.S. Representatives Luke Messer and Todd Rokita hammered each other with personal attacks, Braun portrayed his rivals as indistinguishable products of Washington. Braun will face off against first-term Democratic Sen.

"Some people in Washington care more about dividing us and playing politics than getting to work and solving these problems", he said. "We need to secure our coal miners' pensions, protect our seniors, keep the promises we've made to our veterans, fix the epidemic of drug addiction, expand broadband, protect healthcare, and grow opportunities for all West Virginians".

"It's going to be hard for him to do it", Rupp said.

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. In Sen. Joe Manchin III's (D-W.Va.) state, Democrats were most anxious about Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.), a former Democrat who had blown the party out in its traditional southwestern strongholds.

Blankenship was CEO of mine owner Massey Energy, whose Upper Big Branch mine in southern West Virginia exploded in April 2010. Blankenship led the company that owned the mine and was sentenced to a year in prison for conspiring to break safety laws, a misdemeanor.

In the week leading up to the vote, there was national media attention to Blankenship, amid claims that his campaign was "surging", although attendance at his campaign events was invariably poor. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), for example, has taken the president's side in votes more than 60 percent of the time, including crucial Cabinet nominations. Sen. They were hopeful that enough voters like Tom Vogel of Charleston would show up Tuesday.

Trump urges West Virginia Republicans to oppose Blankenship
Blankenship's statement blamed "the establishment" for Trump's comment about him and said he would defeat Manchin. There's an argument that this is the kind of thing that could work uniquely well in West Virginia.

He said his future includes travel. To find a sitting politician who so forcefully impressed himself upon the imaginations of Americans one would have to look back to Franklin Roosevelt.

"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".

Primary voters on Tuesday picked a congressman backed by President Donald Trump to be the GOP nominee against Democratic Sen. The figure in West Virginia was only slightly higher, at 26 percent.

As the election was being called for Morrisey, a tweet from McConnell's official campaign account appeared to ridicule Blankenship.

Jenkins has made much of Morrisey's past lobbying ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

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

In the race to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. John Kasich, voters set up a fall contest between Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray.

Donald Trump carried the 3rd District by 50 points in 2016 while Mitt Romney carried it by 32 points. The result was a historic stay in the United States Supreme Court in 2016.
