Harpers Ferry, WV – In a sign of Patrick Morrisey’s growing support in the U.S Senate race in West Virginia, Morrisey announced that he has raised approximately $672,000 in the third financial quarter of 2017.
Morrisey announced more than $548,000 cash on hand for the quarter.
Morrisey’s fundraising haul is more than TRIPLE the $220,000 raised by his primary opponent, Evan Jenkins, in the same reporting period. Jenkins also burned through his entire fundraising haul this quarter – spending $206,000 and netting only $14,000 this quarter. With his lackluster fundraising and his liberal record of supporting cap-and-trade and Hillary Clinton, Jenkins’ campaign is quickly deteriorating.
Morriey’s impressive numbers come on the heels of growing support and endorsements from across West Virginia and the nation. Just last week, Morrisey received support from Trump advisor Steve Bannon and the conservative Citizens United Political Victory Fund. Morrisey has also been endorsed by West Virginians for Life, West Virginia Citizens Defense League, Gun Owners of America, FreedomWorks PAC, and more than 30 West Virginia elected officials.
“I’m so grateful for the outpouring of support our campaign has received over the past three months,” Morrisey said. “Our conservative message of protecting coal, limiting government, and defending our traditional West Virginia values is resonating across the state and the nation. Sen. Manchin has failed the people of West Virginia by siding with Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer one too many times, and voters are clearly hungry for a conservative senator who represents their values.”
