RGA Boosts Manchin While Hitting Tomblin

September 24, 2012

How little hope do Republicans have of unseating Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., in November? The Republican Governor's Association just dropped their second ad in the state's gubernatorial race, and they give the senator a boost in the course of attacking Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.

"Obama made war on coal, pushing higher taxes, more regulations," says the ad's announcer. "I took them to court and we won," says Tomblin in a clip. "Whoa, hold on there, partner," the announcer answers. "Earl Ray did not take Obama to court, Gov. Manchin did."

And a signal that the popular senator isn't too worried about the race: He just released his second campaign ad -- and it's another positive spot, featuring his wife cutting his hair. He's running against businessman John Raese, who also challenged him in a much closer race in 2010.

Tomblin is also running in a rematch -- against Bill Maloney, whom he faced in the special gubernatorial race last year. But the governor's race this year is considered potentially more competitive than the Senate contest.

In contrast to Manchin's latest spot, Tomblin released a hard-hitting attack ad today.
