It most certainly does, especially after 2016-17.

Blankenship also owes big bucks in unpaid taxes in Kentucky, where he also owns and operates mines. These taxes would go to support public schools in the Eastern Kentucky counties where the mines are located and the money is owed.

Kentucky's public schools need all the help they can get right now - but multimillionaire Blankenship is pleading poverty.

He appears to be as corrupt at they come.

I don't know how he ever thought he could get any support at all in the southern part of the state. His ego is even bigger than his bank account. His simply awful ads are not helping either.

He`s following a long standing coal country tradition of doing as little as possible for those who made him wealthy.

Being from Alabama, you would think that you would realize that with libs, it's also sometimes about your side nominating pedophiles and pretending evil people are people of God.

I held my nose and voted for Doug Jones.

Being registered (I) in WV means I can choose either parties ballot in the primaries. Not being able to stomach any of the three (R) candidates I thought about taking a (R) ballot to vote for Blankenship as there is no way he could win come November.

While Manchin is less offensive (he at least is from here and lived here) the entire mess with his daughter still bothers me quite a bit. (You have to read about her bogus diploma and understand she was behind the epi-pen mess). Joe took a lot of this money.

I'll probably take the (D) ballot and support Paula Jean Swearengin.

No you aren't. You know you would love to see him get the nomination. It would give you something to gloat about and give you reason to think the Dems will win back the seat.
