Exclusive — West Virginia AG Patrick Morrisey Touts Endorsement of Trump as Reason He’s Leading Gubernatorial Primary

West Virginia gubernatorial candidate Patrick Morrisey on Breitbart News Saturday touted his endorsement of former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign as one of the primary reasons he’s leading in the gubernatorial primary.

Morrisey spoke with Breitbart News Saturday host and Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle, as Morrisey hopes to secure the Republican nomination for the state’s gubernatorial election to replace the outgoing Gov. Jim Justice (R).

He credited his endorsement of Trump as one reason that he is leading in the race, noting that he is the only candidate in the Republican gubernatorial primary to have endorsed Trump’s reelection bid.

“President Trump is very popular in West Virginia. Matt, think of this one. One of the reasons why I think we’re so strongly positioned to win this race is because I’m the only candidate for governor who’s even endorsed Trump. Can you imagine that in a Republican primary?” he asked rhetorically.
