AG Hopeful Puts $235K of Own Money in Campaign

Doug Reynolds

Democrat Doug Reynolds has put about $235,000 of his own money into his bid against first-term Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

The West Virginia House delegate reported his campaign finance totals late last week.

Reynolds spent about $239,000 of the $253,100 he brought by writing checks to his campaign and soliciting some donations. He has spent largely on TV advertising.

Morrisey has about $648,400 in his campaign account. He put $250,000 of his money into the campaign last spring. Morrisey has raised $472,100, including $160,600 since late last March.

Reynolds entered the race in January. Both candidates are unopposed in the May 10 primary election.
