Madison, WI – Today, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin endorsed conservative Patrick Morrisey in the U.S. Senate race in West Virginia.
In his endorsement, Gov. Walker emphasized Attorney General Morrisey’s commitment to conservative causes and his success in achieving results. From Morrisey’s successful defeat of President Obama’s War on Coal, to Morrisey’s fight to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, to Morrisey’s defense of gun rights, Patrick has been on the front lines of every major conservative battle.
“Attorney General Morrisey’s strong, conservative record is exactly what West Virginia needs in its next senator,” Gov. Walker said. “Patrick has fought for West Virginians while defending the rule of law, and he is ready to keep fighting for them as a champion of conservative reform in Washington, D.C.”
“I’m honored to receive Gov. Walker’s support in this Senate race,” Patrick Morrisey said. “Gov. Walker has been a conservative leader in the Midwest and across the nation, cutting taxes and defunding Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin. His endorsement will excite the many conservatives across West Virginia and the nation who have rallied to our campaign. Together, we will win the primary and take on liberal Joe Manchin in the general.”
