CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Latest on a bid by former coal CEO Don Blankenship to get his name on the ballot in November's U.S. Senate race in West Virginia (all times local): 4:10 p.m. The state Supreme Court has denied a bid by former coal CEO Don Blankenship to get his name on the ballot in November's U.S. Senate race in West Virginia. The court made its ruling Wednesday after hearing Blankenship's appeal of a decision denying his third-party candidacy application. Blankenship has said he plans to go to a federal appeals court if his bid was denied. Secretary of State Mac Warner blocked Blankenship's bid to run as the Constitution Party's nominee, based on the state's "sore loser" law.
