CHARLESTON -- Charleston attorney and Attorney General Candidate Dan Greear recently announced additional support from legislators across the state.
Greear said he is pleased and humbled to have more elected officials support his campaign.
"Running a statewide race is very exciting. I find myself in a different part of the state every day," Greear said. "Having support from legislators in nearly every area in the state is encouraging as a candidate. Officeholders elected by the people of West Virginia believe I am the best Republican candidate for the job.
"I feel honored to now have endorsements from 22 current and former legislators. To my knowledge at this time, my opponent has not received the endorsement of a single elected official in our state."
Greear is running against Morgantown attorney Hiram Lewis for the Republican nomination. The winner of that May 13 primary will square off against Democratic incumbent Darrell McGraw in the fall.
Greear recently received endorsements from House of Delegates members Kelly Sobonya (R-Cabell), Ray Canterbury (R-Greenbrier), Carol Miller (R-Cabell) and Troy Andes (R-Putnam).
"I am humbled to have the support of these fantastic and energetic leaders and I look forward to working with them as our next Attorney General," Greear said.
Greear said many lawmakers already have assisted his campaign by organizing fundraisers in their hometowns and campaigned door-to-door.
"Our first hurdle is to win the primary," Greear said. "With the support of Republicans across the state and with the backing of our elected officials, we are pleased with our progress thus far."
