Recently, the attorney general unveiled the “Combatting Addiction with Grace” initiative, which seeks to bring in religious leaders to act in a counseling capacity to help ensure those battling substance abuse don’t relapse. Morrisey said his office will act as facilitators and supply important treatment information to involved pastors and connect them with law enforcement agencies, first responders, residential treatment and local substance abuse groups.

A statement obtained by The Dominion Post June 7 also indicated that Morrisey is “seriously considering” a run for the office in 2018 against Democrat Joe Manchin, a decision he expects to reach within the next two months.
