I have a profile today of Bill Maloney, the Republican candidate for governor. One of the questions some people have is, simply, Who is advising Maloney on policy?
Among the things that didn’t make the profile are a couple of people known to be giving Maloney some advice (besides his campaign team):
- Jackson Kelly general counsel Stephen Crislip
- Morgantown technology executive and attorney Pat Esposito, who was briefly the deputy general counsel to former Gov. Bob Wise, a Democrat (Esposito has since switched parties)
- Donnie Adkins, who has been the chief lawyer for the state Senate’s Republican caucus
