West Virginia Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Patrick Morrisey on Wednesday told Fox News that he was the best choice because he held the right positions “on all the issues that matter” like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Following a Tuesday night GOP primary debate in West Virginia, Morrisey insisted to Fox News host Sandra Smith that he was the only “credible” conservative in the race.
“For members of your party in that state, they’re looking for the best candidate to take on [Democratic Sen.] Joe Manchin,” Smith observed.
“They are looking for someone who will be strong to take on Joe Manchin,” Morrisey agreed. “On all of the issues that matter, I really match up very well against him. Whether it’s on Hillary [Clinton], Barack Obama or cap and trade, which killed coal jobs or Joe Manchin flipped flopped on Planned Parenthood, he’s bad on guns.”
“On every single one of those issues, we’re in the exact opposite position,” he added.

Trump lawyer Ken Starr blasted for his ‘vomit inducing’ hypocrisy as he whines about being in an ‘age of impeachment’
After making his debut in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Ken Starr, who is one of the newest members of Trump's legal team, is on the receiving end of mockery on Twitter after he declared that the US is "living in what can aptly be described as the age of impeachment."
Starr played a key role in former president Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial, and issued the infamous Starr Report detailing the extramarital affair Clinton had with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky -- a history that prompted some to point out the irony of his statement:
‘Zero cooperation’ from Prince Andrew over Epstein: US prosecutor
Prince Andrew has provided "zero cooperation" regarding late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and has yet to respond to a FBI request for an interview, a US prosecutor said Monday.
Andrew denies claims he had sex with a 17-year-old girl procured by Epstein and said in November he was "willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required."
But New York attorney Geoffrey Berman, who is leading an investigation into possible co-conspirators of Epstein's, said his office and the FBI had not heard from Andrew despite his offer to cooperate.
‘Get your facts straight’: Chris Wallace destroys pundit for citing Clinton impeachment to exclude Bolton
Sparks flew on Fox News ahead of the president's impeachment trial Monday when host Chris Wallace took on conservative pundit Katie Pavlich.
For her part, Pavlich argued that Republicans have a right to block former National Security Adviser John Bolton from testifying because his testimony had not been first heard in the House of Representatives. Pavlich pointed to the impeachment of Bill Clinton as an example.
"That's not true, that's not true," Wallace interrupted. "They hadn't all been called in the House... That is just wrong, Katie."
Wallace reminded Pavlich that many of the witnesses in Clinton's impeachment had spoken to the Independent Counsel's investigation and were not directly called to testify in the House.
