West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) announced on Monday that he had outraised all other gubernatorial candidates combined.
Morrisey’s campaign said in a release that since he entered the race to replace outgoing Gov. Jim Justice (R), he has raised roughly $2,584,975, and has over $2 million cash on hand.
Morrisey has nearly $2 million that may be spent on the primary race for the governorship, which is more than what his rival Moore Capito can spend in the primary. Morrisey’s release said that he has outraised his opponents by more than two to one in his bid to become governor.
