West Virginia Republican candidate for Senate, Don Blankenship, is gone:
Projection: Don Blankenship (R) loses #WVSEN primary.

Itâ€™s still too close to call a winner, however:
So, how about those predictions, MSM?
It looks like Blankenship is going to come in third in his primary despite the mediaâ€™s inexcusable focus on him and complete blackout of his opponents.
I mean how do you explain the press having most of their reporters in WV covering the 3rd place primary finisher? https://t.co/DjEXU2DYgr

Looks like the predictions about Blankenship surging to a win wereâ€¦way off. https://t.co/oH1T2NzHg0

So who made up the bad polls in WV and retailed them to create a pseudo -event?

So, uhâ€¦ what was with those Blankenship polls?

Oh wait, you're telling me I'm not supposed to trust those internal polls that were leaked without sponsors or name of pollster?

And this has brought liberals and conservatives together to give a shout out to Mitch McConnell, who Blankenship nicknamed â€œCocaine Mitchâ€œ:
