West Virginia businessman and GOP nominee for U.S. Senate John Raese may have just gotten some new fodder.
Raese, who trails West Virginia Gov Joe Manchin by only 6 points in the latest Rasmussen survey, is already on the air with a two-week, statewide ad buy, telling voters that, "Joe Manchin has been supporting Barack Obama's liberal agenda for years. Manchin supports Obama's government-run health care."
Now, a video from 2009 has surfaced on the conservative blog, West Virginia Red, which shows Manchin saying, "I am totally behind health care reform."
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
