Far-Right Politician Announces Third-Party Run for President

Failed West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blakenship has announced a third-party bid for president. 

Despite his longtime GOP affiliation, Blakenship has consistently been a thorn in the side of the Republican Party.

Per Mediaite:

“President Trump means well, but he simply cannot get it done because he is too busy mending his self-inflicted wounds and tripping over his ego,” Blankenship said in his announcement.

Blankenship is running for the Constitution Party’s nomination.

The former CEO of coal extractor Massey Energy Company, Blankenship was sentenced to a year in prison in 2016 for a misdemeanor conviction of conspiring to violate safety regulations after a mine explosion killed 29 people but was acquitted on several felony charges.

Blankenship’s Senate campaign rose to national prominence after he ran an ad dubbing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “Cocaine Mitch” and called Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao‘s father a “wealthy Chinaperson.”
