Breitbart: Exclusive — Citizens United For Conservative Patrick Morrisey Over Mitch McConnell-Backed Evan Jenkins in West Virginia Senate Battle

The Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF) is backing Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, the conservative candidate for U.S. Senate in West Virginia, against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked choice, Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV).

"CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Patrick Morrisey for U.S. Senator from West Virginia," Citizens United president Dave Bossie, the deputy campaign manager of President Donald Trump's successful 2016 presidential campaign, said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release. "Attorney General Morrisey is a conservative stalwart who will come to the U.S. Senate to fight for the interests of West Virginia, not the Washington establishment."

"We support Patrick Morrisey for Senate because he has a proven record of results fighting for conservative West Virginia values and against the harmful liberal agenda of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton," Bossie added. "Attorney General Morrisey was there to take on executive overreach at the Obama Environmental Protection Agency for the coal miners and he's been there to support President Trump’s agenda taking on sanctuary cities and pushing for much needed tax reform. I look forward to working with Patrick Morrisey to enact President Trump's conservative agenda when he gets to the Senate. I urge all Republican primary voters in West Virginia to support conservative outsider Patrick Morrisey for the United States Senate."

Morrisey is emerging as a key conservative insurgent in West Virginia, while McConnell and his allies are pushing Jenkins—a former Democrat who once backed failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for president back in 2008. The battle has become one of the flash points in the intra-GOP war.

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is eying Rep. Evan Jenkins as his preferred choice to run against Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia in 2018," David Drucker of the Washington Examiner, one of the GOP establishment's favorite scribes, wrote back in January.
