Republican AG spearheaded investigation into Manchin-tied pharma company
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey will announce his Senate campaign on Monday afternoon, strengthening the field of Republicans lining up to challenge incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin (D.).
Morrisey wrote on his Facebook page Sunday evening that he would be making a "major announcement" in Harpers Ferry at 5 p.m. on Monday. National Reviewreported Monday morning that the major announcement would be a Senate run.
The West Virginia attorney general spearheaded a high-profile fraud investigation into pharmaceutical company Mylan and will now be running to unseat Manchin, whose daughter, Heather Bresch, is CEO of the pharmaceutical company.
