As a 26-year employee of Greer Industries, many people have asked me: Why is John Raese running again?
This is my answer: Raese is running for the U.S. Senate because he is deeply concerned about the direction in which our country is headed.
If you are an employed or unemployed coal miner, Raese is running for you because the future of West Virginia coal is in jeopardy.
Joe Manchin turned his back on W.Va. coal miners when he voted for Harry Reid as Senate majority leader.
John Raese would be West Virginia 's only "true friend of coal."
If you are a Bible-believing Christian, Raese is running for you. He will not turn his back on the sanctity of life once he gets to Washington like Joe Manchin did when he voted against de-funding Planned Parenthood, which supports abortions.
If you are a small business owner, Raese is running for you. He knows what it takes to run a successful business. His family-owned businesses have helped support our state financially since 1917.
When Joe Manchin voted not to extend the Bush tax cuts, he wasn't thinking of the incurred costs to West Virginia small business owners.
If you are a health care provider, John Raese is running for you. Congress will have the opportunity to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
