Morrisey wins West Virginia Governor’s Republican primary

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has secured his spot on the ballot for the WV governor’s race in November 2024.

Morrisey defeated his five opponents in the Republican primary with 33% of the vote. He will now face Democratic candidate Huntington Mayor Steve Williams and Mountain Party candidate Chase Linko-Looper in November. Both Williams and Linko-Looper were unopposed in the primary races.

Morrisey has held the position of WV Attorney General since 2013, elected in 2012. During his tenure, Morisey has been active in the battle against the opioid epidemic, with settlements against drug companies bringing in a record-breaking total of more than $1 billion in settlement funds to West Virginia counties and cities, according to his campaign website. He has also led lawsuits to protect energy jobs in West Virginia and created the state’s first Disability Fraud Unit.

Morrisey is also a supporter of concealed carry in the mountain state and a pro-life advocate. He says some of his other goals are to advance educational excellence, strengthen economic and workforce growth, build broadband and put money back in the pockets of West Virginians.
