West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey stressed his record and accomplishments Thursday in Wheeling while telling Ohio County Republicans why he should be West Virginia’s next governor.
Morrisey served as keynote speaker at the Ohio County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner at the Elm Grove Civics, which attracted a long list of Republican candidates seeking statewide office in 2024.
“My tenure as attorney general — I would argue — gives me the ability to go in on Day 1 and do what no other candidate is going to be able to do,” he told those in attendance. “We are going to have a level of change, and a level of accomplishment, coming out of West Virginia that you have never seen before.”
He acknowledged politicians are noted for “talking a lot and making promises.”
“How many people have been really disappointed by what we see in Washington recently?” Morrisey asked. “I have. I think it has been utterly dysfunctional. We need to do better in West Virginia and make sure we set up a model of how the whole country should function.
