Gov. Joe Manchin's (D-W.Va.) closing argument in West Virginia's Senate race is a simple one — his Republican opponent is "crazy."
A new 30-second Manchin campaign spot targets Republican businessman John Raese by stringing together several comments Democrats have used to hit Raese throughout the race.
In one, the Republican says, "I don't agree with minimum wage." The shot then cuts to Raese at a campaign event where he tells supporters, "I'm in the business of making money."
In another, Raese says, "We don't need the Department of Education." That's followed by a clip of Raese's pitch for a network of lasers capable of shooting down incoming missiles.
The ad's narrator concludes: "John Raese's ideas are crazy."
In response, a spokesman for Raese's campaign said it's Manchin's ideas that are crazy.
"Crazy? No Joe, supporting Obamacare is crazy," Raese spokesman Kevin McLaughlin said. "Wasting trillions in stimulus spending is crazy. $13 trillion in debt is crazy. Cap and trade is crazy. West Virginians who oppose all those things aren't crazy, but politicians who support them sure are."
Poll numbers in the race continue to seesaw ahead of Election Day. A new Fox News poll out Tuesday gives Raese a two-point edge over Manchin — 48 percent to 46.
On Monday, Democrats were touting numbers from Public Policy, which put Manchin up six percentage points.
