WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore released the following statement on the GOP Senate Primary Result:
“The majority of Republican voters rejected Patrick Morrisey once they found out about his reckless agenda that hurts working families. You can bet that voters in the general election will reach the same conclusion his fellow Republicans did.
“Patrick Morrisey left this nasty primary fight bloodied because West Virginians learned that Morrisey has always pushed a self-serving agenda that hurts working families. West Virginia Republicans are so divided that at least one of Morrisey’s opponents vowed not to support him.
“Voters will remember that Republicans spent months highlighting his work lobbying for big pharma, labeling him an establishment swamp creature, and his agenda of gridlock.
“West Virginians know that Joe Manchin is one of us, and can always be trusted to fight for working families. Joe has always been committed to creating new opportunities, higher wages, and a secure retirement for West Virginia workers.
“Tonight’s results prove that Democrats are united and ready to win the general election up and down the ballot, and Republicans are weak and divided.”
