Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) team made it very clear on Tuesday where the congressman stands on Don Blankenship, the convicted criminal and former Republican Senate candidate who called McConnell “Cocaine Mitch.”


Blakenship on Tuesday conceded the West Virginia Senate race after trailing in third place.

Borrowing from a promotional image for the Netflix drama Narcos, Team Mitch sent out a remarkable tweet telling Blankenship, “thanks for playing.”

Blankenship had targeted McConnell in an ad released last week:

“Swamp Captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for Chinapeople. While doing so, Mitch has gotten rich. In fact, his China family has given him tens of millions of dollars. The war to drain the swamp and create jobs for West Virginia people has begun. I will beat Joe Manchin and ditch Cocaine Mitch for the sake of the kids.”

The Internet on Tuesday noted McConnell got the last laugh.
