Sen. Rand Paul Endorses Patrick Morrisey for U.S. Senate

Washington, DC – Conservative stalwart Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) endorsed Republican candidate Patrick Morrisey in the race for U.S. Senate in West Virginia.

Sen. Rand Paul is one the nation’s leading advocates for liberty and constitutional principles. He has built a reputation for fighting for less government and more freedom.

“Patrick Morrisey has a proven conservative record of fighting for conservative values,” Sen. Rand said. “As Attorney General, Patrick has stood up for West Virginia taxpayers, defended the state from President Obama’s overzealous regulations, and expanded gun rights. With so many politicians in Washington stuck in the swamp, we could use a senator with Patrick’s principled integrity in the U.S. Senate. I look forward to working with Patrick next year in defense of our shared conservative principles.”

“It is an honor to receive Sen. Paul’s endorsement in this race,” Patrick Morrisey said. “I’ve long admired Sen. Paul’s commitment to fiscal responsibility, less government, and constitutional principles. Sen. Paul has been a leader in fighting for a balanced budget and eliminating President Obama’s draconian regulations – issues very near and dear to West Virginians’ hearts. I look forward to working with him on these important efforts and many others.”
