Republican candidates for governor want to build on West Virginia track record, with variations

Morrisey, a three-term Attorney General, described continuing the kind of high-profile fights his office has engaged in over more than a decade.

He made reference to defending the integrity of women’s sports, by which he meant court battles to keep transgender athletes off sports teams based on their gender identity, and defending the sanctity of life, by which he meant strict abortion policies.

“As you look to elect your next governor in the great state of West Virginia, you want to look to elect a proven conservative, who’s been there, who’s done that, who’s worked on all the tough issues, all the big challenges facing West Virginia. That’s my record is your Attorney General. And as you start to go through the list of issues, these are the things that matter for the future of our state,” Morrisey told the crowd.

“Protecting our job base here in West Virginia, tackling the drug epidemic at a level that you haven’t seen in other states before, defending the integrity of women’s sports, ensuring that people’s values in West Virginia are the way they always have been. We’re not looking to go forward with the woke left culture. We’re looking to ensure that when people move to our state, they’re going to be in a conservative place. Defending our Second Amendment rights. These are rights that we cherish — and upholding the sanctity of life.”
