Failed Republican West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship is not only withholding his endorsement from Republican candidate Patrick Morrisey, he has vowed to actively work to damage his chances.

Blankenship campaign manager Greg Thomas told West Virginia’s “Talkline with Hoppy Kercheval” that “I think the one thing he is going to make sure doesn’t happen is that Patrick Morrisey does not become a U.S. Senator.”

When pushed for a reason for the intra-party animosity, Thomas called Morrisey a “corrupt carpetbagger.”

“Don Blankenship does not believe it should be Patrick Morrisey. He also does not believe it should be Joe Manchin,” Thomas said, referencing the Democratic incumbent. “Don’s gonna do what he thinks is best. We’ve only just begun”
