While Democrats have largely avoided intraparty fights in big races, Republicans have deep concerns about potentially bitter primaries for statewide offices in Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida that fall in the late summer, with little time to unify ranks afterward for November.
The good news Tuesday for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Trump was the third-place finish of Don Blankenship, former coal executive who had spent a year in prison for violating safety regulations after a deadly mine disaster. Blankenship was living in a Phoenix halfway house this time previous year, after his conviction for conspiracy to skirt mine safety rules after an incident claimed the life of 29 miners at one of his facilities.

In a lighter moment, Morrisey thanked President Donald Trump for his now famous tweet that exhorted West Virginia citizens to vote for either Morrisey or Jenkins instead of Blankenship.

He'll be the favorite to win in November for the seat left open after Republican Rep. Luke Messer chose to give it up to run for Senate.
"Mr. President, if you're watching right now, let me tell you, your tweet was huge", Morrisey said in his nomination address, referring to Trump's election eve call for voters to shun Blankenship's candidacy. Overall, more Democrats voted than Republicans. He told them that "I$3 f people like me can't win from red states, you'll be in the minority the rest of your life". Messser introduced a resolution calling on Trump to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
And while President Donald Trump emerged from the first batch of primaries with clear political victories, the same can't be said for those seeking to borrow and build on his campaign playbook.
The only statewide election on Tuesday in which the victor was a surprise was the Republican primary for Senate in IN, which was won by a multimillionaire businessman named Mike Braun, who put enough of his own money into the race that he spent more than both of his opponents-the congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer-combined.
