Veterans for Trump AKA Veterans for America First rolled out an exclusive endorsement announcement of Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for West Virginia Governor through Sean Moran Breitbart politics.
"Vlad Lemets, chairman of Veterans for America First aka Veterans for Trump , said in a written statement: Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is the only true conservative in the West Virginia Governor's race and has always been supportive of our veterans and law enforcement. He has endorsed Trump for 47. We need a top law enforcement officer as governor, especially with the weaponization of the government against conservatives occurring. We are honored to announce his endorsement."
Patrick Morrisey was elected as the Attorney General for the State of West Virginia on November 6, 2012, and was sworn into office on January 14, 2013. Patrick Morrisey is the first Republican to serve as Attorney General in West Virginia since 1933, and as a resident of Harpers Ferry, Morrisey is also the first Attorney General from Jefferson County in our state's history.
Since becoming Attorney General, Morrisey has made fighting fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption a top priority of the Office. Shortly after taking office, he instituted a new policy for hiring outside counsel that has dramatically increased transparency and saved the state more than $4 million. He also voluntarily returned approximately $18 million in monies to the state and has brought in many millions more to state agency clients and consumers.
In 2014, Attorney General Morrisey called on the West Virginia Legislature to do thorough audits and performance reviews of all state agencies to help detect any abuse of taxpayer dollars. Morrisey has been a staunch advocate of fundamental reforms to reshape our state's economic climate and help West Virginia reach its potential.
In addition, Morrisey has been one of the most active Attorneys General in the country fighting federal overreach by filing lawsuits and submitting amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts on a number of issues, ranging from protecting the Second Amendment to defending state jobs and our valuable energy resources. Morrisey is spearheading the 27 State litigation against the President's Clean Power Plan, one of the most illegal and unprecedented regulations in our country's history.
During his tenure in office, Morrisey has strengthened the Office's Consumer Protection Division, enabling it to vigorously enforce the state's laws and proactively educate citizens about scams and ways to their identities.
In practice since 1992, Morrisey worked on many high profile health care matters in private practice prior to serving as Attorney General, and possesses a broad array of experience on regulatory issues, Medicare, Medicaid, policy, fraud and abuse investigations, legislative matters, strategic counseling, and legal and policy challenges to federal statutes and regulations.
Between 1999 to 2004, Morrisey served as the Deputy Staff Director and Chief Health Care Counsel to the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee, helping draft and negotiate major legislation, including the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 and the Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness Act of 2002. Morrisey served as the principal liaison for the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee on health care issues to the White House, the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Morrisey graduated with honors from Rutgers College in 1989 earning Bachelor of Arts degrees in history and political science. He received a juris doctor from Rutgers Law School-Newark in 1992.
