SCF Congratulates Morrisey in West Virginia

Alexandria, VA – Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) President Ken Cuccinelli made the following statement regarding the Republican nomination of Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for U.S. Senate in West Virginia:

“We congratulate Republicans in West Virginia for nominating a principled leader who not only can defeat Senator Manchin but who will keep his word and fight for conservative policies in the Senate. Patrick Morrisey believes deeply in the principles of freedom that make our country great, and he’s someone voters can count on to support and defend the Constitution.
“It’s important to note that Senator Mitch McConnell put this seat at greater risk by giving an unattractive candidate like Don Blankenship an even more unpopular foil to run against. McConnell has become so toxic with Republican primary voters that his support is often the kiss of death and his opposition is a powerful endorsement.”
