West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is calling his challengers in the state’s 2024 gubernatorial election to the debate stage, saying debate decisions should not be left up to the media because they are intended to inform the electorate.
“I’m challenging major candidates running for WV Governor to a series of three debates after the legal filing deadline in January,” Morrisey posted on X, Friday, including a video message. “West Virginia Republicans deserve to hear directly from candidates who have taken the serious steps of running for Governor and who have actually filed for office. We look forward to engaging with other candidates in debate in early 2024.
“We will gladly collaborate with other candidates, sponsors, the GOP, and media outlets to make that happen.”
