Recap of Vice President Mike Pence visit to Bridgeport WV


Vice President Mike Pence made a return to the Mountain State. 

You may recall just a few months ago when the Vice President made a visit to Wheeling, but Saturday, he made a stop in Bridgeport, WV.

With Election Day just over two weeks away, there was another push Saturday evening from the White House to win the U.S. Senate race here in West Virginia. This time the Vice President was in the Mountain State. 

Approximately 400 people gathered at a business at the North Central West Virginia Airport in Bridgeport. Vice President Mike Pence is campaigning for U.S. Senate nominee Patrick Morrisey, currently the Attorney General of West Virginia. Morrisey is locked in a tight race with Senator Joe Manchin.

“Today I’ll make you a promise,” said Vice President Mike Pence. “You send Patrick Morrisey to the U.S. Senate with renewed Republican majorities, we’re going to secure our border; we’re going to build the wall; we’re going to close the loopholes.” 

“Vice President Pence really did a great job laying out the contrast,” said Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, (R) Nominee for U.S. Senate. “I’m the conservative fighter who’s going to help West Virginia; help advance the Trump jobs agenda. Joe Manchin is a dishonest Washington liberal.”

Morriesy believes the race is tightening and polls that show Manchin with a wider lead are inaccurate. Morrisey believes this is going to be very close.

“I think we’re dead even right now,” said Atty. Gen. Patrick Morrisey, (R) Candidate for U.S. Senate. “I know that with Vice President Pence coming in, Donald Trump Jr, coming in; President Trump we’re hopeful he is coming back, yet again.”

The biggest applause of the night went for immigration reform and the performance of the U.S. economy. Pence says he needs Patrick Morrisey to help on those issues in the U.S. Senate.

“We will make America great again,” said Vice President Pence. “Let’s go get it done. Let’s go get it done West Virginia.”

Vice President Pence has campaigned twice for Morrisey in West Virginia. President Trump has also been here twice.

You don’ have to wait until Election Day of November 6 to cast your ballot. Early Voting begins in West Virginia this coming Wednesday October 24, and runs through November 3.
