John Raese Hands Democrats a Gift

January 13, 2012
A Manchin television ad released in late October hit Raese for his Florida residence, suggesting that he lived there to avoid income taxes. "The Raeses won't release their taxes because they're cheating the rest of us in West Virginia," read the text on the screen. And the DSCC released an ad at around the same time, also focused on the businessman's Sunshine State ties. "The Raeses have a mansion in Palm Beach," says the ad's announcer. "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."
