Patrick Morrisey tours local business in Beckley

BECKLEY (WOAY)- Candidates are nearing the 11th hour in their election campaigns, making their final stops throughout our area. That includes Attorney General and republican senate candidate Patrick Morrisey. He was in Beckley Wednesday to talk tax cuts and take a tour of a local business.

Morrisey was able to get a first-hand look at Summit Supply Inc., a local plumbing business in Beckley. He got the grand tour and says he’s in our area because he wants to hear southern West Virginia’s voice. One way of doing that, Morrisey says, is to come to small businesses like Summit Supply and hear about the positive impact President Trump has had in the area.

“It’s actually neat to see what a small business with 11 people in West Virginia can do and the vital role it can play in the economy,” Morrisey said. “So I’m really grateful for the opportunity to be here and to learn a little bit more.”

“A lot of these people in Southern West Virginia raised me and give me the ability to own this,” Summit Supply owner Chuck McCormack said. “There are good customers in the coal fields and we just need a lot of help and representation and it’s nice to have him come.”

Morrisey faces incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in the upcoming election. The two debate Thursday night in Morgantown.
