Fox News: Conservative Senate candidates are ready to take on the Establishment in 2018

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the 2018 U.S. Senate midterms and Americans who prefer conservative Washington outsiders as candidates have much to be happy about.  Since the American people elected the ultimate political outsider Donald Trump as president of the United States in 2016, establishment Republicans in Washington have done little to convince these voters that they got the message.  The status quo in Washington is still failing, the president’s agenda is stalled, and that is emboldening anti-establishment conservatives to run for the U.S. Senate. 

It’s a simple equation. If Congress passed some of the big ticket items that they promised, there would be less oxygen for challengers. That being said, principled Washington outsiders are lining up to either take out liberal Democrats up for re-election in states that Donald Trump carried, primary RINO Republican Senators like Jeff Flake, or run for open seats.

My organization Citizens United Political Victory Fund has been involved in midterm elections such as these for a long time. We take them seriously. We’ve had some great success stories, and we’ve learned from our mistakes in the races we’ve lost. We analyze each race on the merits, state by state, candidate by candidate.

In West Virginia, conservative all-star and twice elected state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is the change agent and outsider in the race. We’ve supported Morrisey in the past and his record as AG indicates he’ll come to Washington to fight for the reforms that Republicans have been promising for a long time. He’s running against establishment darling Congressman Evan Jenkins in the Republican primary who was a Democrat just a few years ago. Morrisey can draw the contrast necessary to defeat incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin in the general election next November.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for U.S. Senate.  CUPVF has also contributed $5,000 to Morrisey's campaign.

"CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Patrick Morrisey for U.S. Senator from West Virginia. 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," said Citizens United President David Bossie.

"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," added Bossie, who served as President Donald J. Trump's Deputy Campaign Manager.

"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," Bossie concluded.


CUPVF Endorses Conservative Josh Mandel For U.S. Senate In Ohio

"As a U.S. Marine veteran who served our country on two tours in Iraq, Josh Mandel will be a strong voice in the United States Senate working with President Trump to destroy ISIS once and for all.
