Today was a busy news and campaign day across the nation.  In West Virgina, Raese had a rally that featured, you betcha, Sarah Palin, and Ted Nugent. The WaPo picks up the AP feed of the event here.

Politics Daily posted a very nice assessment of the campaign here.  In an interview, Manchin claims he is not going to resemble anyone but himself–he is independent.  But at the Herald, he claims he wants to be like former Sen. Byrd and follow in his footsteps.

In the run up to the election, I have been a little surprised how little we have heard from Raese.  Manchin has been running like he really wants the job.  He has been everywhere it appears.

This race is going to be close I think.  It is not a great time for me to be traveling to the Middle East (look for a post on that tomorrow).  Tune into WLTV14 for election night coverage.
