    This is such a non-story, it's not even funny.

    This is standard, for both sides.

    I've seen these ads. I live in a unique television market serviced by stations in Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Ohio and Steubenville, Ohio. The Steubenville station also services the northern panhandle of West Virginia.

    These ads are a farce. The 'actors' are clearly not West Virginians. I know West Virginians, and these guys ain't the genuine article. Raese is getting hammered by negative ads run by the Manchian campaign and the DNC. And the negativity of the ads is borne on the words coming out of Raese's mouth on camera. Raese says "I'm not in business to provide jobs. I'm in business to make money." And, "I made my money the old fashioned way. I inherited it." Way to connect with the common man, Mr. Raese!

    Raese needs to call the Chamber and get them to pump some foreign money into some attack ads. That will give him a leg up!

    I wouldn't say that too loudly. You ever watch Deliverance?
