The AG of West Virginia, Patrick Morrisey, has beaten out challengers to become the Senate nominee for his state. It was a hard-won victory that shows America that WV is fully behind the MAGA platform and the president; Morrisey beat out Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV) and businessman Don Blankenship to secure the nomination.
Jenkins was fully backed as the establishment candidate by Mitch McConnell hoping for a “business as usual” election…but it was not to be.
With Morrisey at the helm, the election looks set to be one of MAGA ideals versus liberalized swamp dwellers.
In reaction to Morrisey's victory, the Tea Party Patriots president said:
“Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund congratulates Patrick Morrisey on his victory in the West Virginia Republican Primary for U.S. Senate. Our supporters urged us to back Patrick because he has proven himself to be a strong constitutional conservative with the fortitude and conviction necessary to dismantle Big Government without getting stuck in the Washington swamp.”
Clearly striking all the MAGA notes.
Encouragement was forthcoming from Senator Rand Paul in an exclusive comment with Breitbart who said:
“I think it’s always more important to be a conservative than the Republican party label. Even in West Virginia there are conservative Democrats. In my home state, I cannot win without conservative Democrats. Manchin may go home and say one thing, but the problem is that he votes for Chuck Schumer on day one and he votes for an agenda that’s so liberal that the Democrat party has strayed so far away from the Democrats in West Virginia. I think Patrick can get the conservative Democrats in West Virginia, people that go to church, who have families and care about their families, will vote for Patrick given the choice.”
