Blankenship Will Run For West Virginia Senate Seat On Constitution Party

Good luck with that Don. Have you even read the constitution?

West Virginia coal baron and former prisoner Don Blankenship announced on Monday that he plans to launch a long-shot third-party Senate bid after finishing a distant third in this month’s Republican primary.

Blankenship said he would run in the general election as the Constitution Party nominee. But he would need to overcome a “sore loser” law in West Virginia that prevents failed candidates in a main-party primary from refiling to run in the general election under another party’s banner.

I hope he's able to run -- it would likely put a dem into the seat.

Maybe as a non-party independent but he still has to file papers and get registered voters to sign them to get on the ballot.

Not if he mounts a write-in. Even that might be enough to get a dem elected.
