Changing policies, Raese contends, would allow the economy to start growing - the opposite of what the country has experienced with a Democratic Senate.
"That's what we've done in Washington - grow government," Raese said. "We need to start growing the economy."
Obamacare, for example, "hands 20 percent of the private sector over to government," he said.
The federal government has given the coming generations $16 trillion in debt, which appalls Raese.
Why does he run when the odds are against him? The answer, instantly: "I'm doing this for my children."
Many people agree. The nation is on the wrong road.
To stop Democrats' megalomaniacal takeover of health care and their out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency, Raese says, voters have "to wrest control of the Senate away from Democrats."
It's true. West Virginians won't get the growth they need unless they change the Senate.
Raese is the change that is needed.
