W.Va. Gov. Hopeful Morrisey to Newsmax: Want to Defend ‘as Much Life as Possible’

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who is running as a Republican in the state’s gubernatorial race, told Newsmax on Monday that former President Donald Trump’s statement on his position on abortion “makes a lot of sense.”

“I certainly, as the attorney general in West Virginia, and I intend to serve as the state’s next governor, I could say that right now I am defending the state’s abortion law, and I think we want to protect innocent life wherever it will be,” Morrisey said during an appearance on Newsmax’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “In states like West Virginia, we should have the ability to protect more life, that makes a lot of sense, and I certainly don’t want to pick some arbitrary number and then have the West Virginia law get worse. That certainly wouldn’t be my goal.”

“I want to make sure that I can defend as much life as possible,” he added. “I think that the Dobbs case does that and that’s certainly what I’ve been fighting for right here in West Virginia.”

As of late March, Morrisey was leading the West Virginia GOP race for governor well ahead of his nearest challenger Chris Miller, who was backed by only 16.2%. The state’s primary is scheduled for May 14.
