Watch West Virginia's Senate candidate's insane Star Wars campaign ads

West Virginia Governor, Joe Manchin, uses the Force for political gain. Watch as the Senatorial candidate paints his opponent as a Sith lord, and then shoots a TIE Fighter down with a rifle. There's a disturbance in the Force, indeed.

We don't know much about his politics, but we do know that these ads insane. But the dated pop culture references don't stop coming! Here's his Austin Powers ad! Your move, John Raese. We suggest going with a Starship Troopers and Alvin and The Chipmunks-based campaign.

WV native here. Manchin is our current governor serving out his last term now vying for senate.

On the whole WV politics are usually a little hokey. It's always about who supports coal, gun rights and the working man. I hate to say but this is probably the most sophisticated ad I've ever seen for around here. Id loved to have been a fly on the wall when Manchin's crew was brainstorming this one!
