Morgantown, West Virginia (CNN) - Wealthy Republican businessman John Raese has run three times for state wide office in West Virginia over the past few decades, and has never won.
It wasn't that long ago that most political observers here and in Washington thought his fourth campaign would be a losing battle too - a Senate race against popular Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin.
Would be sweet for Kennedy, Byrd and Obamas old seats to all fall in to Republican hands. Talk about a total rejection of the Obama presidency. The country really needs this to start moving forward again. Right now we are moving back to the Great Society stuff where we spent $3 trillion dollars for nothing.
