"Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for Chinapeople", Blankenship says in the ad.

"I do think there is a segment of the press corps that loves to cover Republicans who spew racist claptrap because it portrays our party in a negative light and turns off educated voters, upper income voters", Law said.

In keeping with the Blankenship marketing campaign, the candidate has already spoken to his probation officer, who wasn't involved in regards to the monetary disclosure. Some people are Korean persons and some of them are African persons.

"I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ask the people of West Virginia to make a wise decision and reject Blankenship", he tweeted.

The attorney general held a last-minute press conference Sunday to draw attention to Blankenship's failure to submit a personal financial disclosure form, in potential violation of the Ethics in Government Act.

"Don Blankenship has no prayer of winning this race in November", Morrisey said after the event. "It's not any slander there".

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — An ex-coal executive who's running for U.S. Senate after serving a prison sentence has unleashed a political ad that takes swipes at "China people" and calls the Senate majority leader "Cocaine Mitch".

In response, the Senate Leadership Fund has pointed to statements in 2009 in which Blankenship mulled a move to China. "They are calling me a bigot, a moron, a despicable character, and mentally ill". "I've seen that Patrick will stand up and fight not like (in) a barroom, but in a court using his brain as the attorney general of West Virginia to fight for you against the war on coal". "I'd rather be in China, but the hard work and the effort and the creativity that we put into running businesses in the USA would be much more valuable in other places". It includes racial attacks against McConnell and his family. She was born in Taiwan but immigrated to the U.S.as a young child. Her father later founded a successful shipping company in NY. We have worked closely with the President.

President Donald Trump won West Virginia by 42 points in the 2016 election.

"I am not just ready to help President Trump drain the swamp— I am the only candidate that is capable of doing so". "Mr. Morrisey has been less than truthful about his involvement with the drug companies", Blankenship said, noting that an independent bid might be the most viable option in the general election race against current West Virginia senator Democrat Joe Manchin. Chao, he said, is "from China, so we have to be really concerned that we are in truth" putting America's interests first.
