CHARLES TOWN - GOP challenger Patrick Morrisey says he will begin his television advertising campaign Wednesday.
Morrisey, who is running to be West Virginia's next attorney general, said Tuesday the ad will be a "positive spot" focused on "introducing his candidacy."
His ad relies on the help of ordinary West Virginians, he noted.
In particular, in the ad, a number of residents express their confidence in Morrisey, an attorney from the Eastern Panhandle who is challenging longtime incumbent Darrell McGraw in the state's Nov. 6 general election.

"Momentum continues to build around our campaign," Morrisey said in a statement Tuesday.
"While our state is being hit with an endless number of excessive regulations from Washington, it's important to have someone who is willing to push back and fight for West Virginia jobs."
Morrisey, a health care lawyer with more than 20 years of legal and policy experience, has already unveiled a 17-point plan that addresses issues such as ethics reform, health care, the federal Environmental Protection Agency and job growth.
Earlier this month, Morrisey launched his first radio ad during the final Friends of Coal Bowl. The ad focused on taking on the EPA.
