CHARLESTON, W.Va. — For the second time, former coal baron Don Blankenship filed the paperwork necessary to run for U.S. Senate — this time, as a member of the Constitution Party.
Blankenship, who attempted to win the Republican nomination to face U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, filed his certificate of candidacy in person at the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office Tuesday afternoon.
In a statement posted Monday on his campaign’s Facebook page, Blankenship said his candidacy stands the best chance of enacting the policies of President Donald Trump.
