The Senate Conservatives Fund on Wednesday endorsed West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s bid for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.

The group cited the way Mr. Morrisey fought against the Obama administration’s clean power rules and defended the nation’s immigration laws.

“Patrick Morrisey is a full-spectrum conservative who will fight for limited government, economic freedom, and personal responsibility in the United States Senate,” said Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund.

Mr. Morrisey is running in a crowded field of candidates for the GOP nomination that includes Rep. Evan Jenkins, former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship, and former coal miner Bo Copley.

The winner is expected to face-off in the November midterm elections against Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin in one of the nation’s reddest states.
