The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has a new ad in the West Virginia Senate race, casting Republican nominee John Raese as an out-of-touch businessman — who they say really lives in Florida.

“Would John Raese represent West Virginia — or Florida?” the announcer says. “The Raeses have a mansion in Palm Beach, and signed an official form calling Florida their home. His wife even registered to vote there.

“So maybe he should be Florida’s Senator, because John Raese just doesn’t get us. Opposing the minimum wage, and siding with China on steel. That might be okay with the CEOs at the club in Florida. But around here, it’s just out of touch.”

The TPM Poll Average gives Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin a narrow lead of 47.3%-46.4%.
