Morrisey served as deputy staff director and chief health counsel for the United States House Committee on Energy and Commerce. He ran unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in New Jersey's 7th congressional district in 2000, receiving 9% of the vote in the Republican primary. He worked for Sidley Austin before he joined King & Spalding in 2010, becoming a partner.
In 2012, Morrisey ran for Attorney General of West Virginia against Darrell McGraw, a five-term incumbent. Morrisey and out-of-state interest groups out-spent McGraw more than three-to-one. He defeated McGraw and will be sworn in on January 14, 2013, making him the first Republican state Attorney General since 1933.
