West Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Patrick Morrisey sees himself as a battler ready to fight for West Virginia, and he says he has experience “in the arena” his opponents do not.
In addition, he is ready to duke it out as governor with neighboring states in a battle for regional economic supremacy.
Morrisey touted his record as West Virginia’s attorney general while addressing supporters gathered at the Prima Marina in Moundsville on Saturday.
“We’ve taken on a lot of fights haven’t we? And we’ve won a lot of those fights, haven’t we?” Morrisey asked those present.
