According to reports from the state auditor's office, Greer Industries has made West Virginia's list of the top 200 state government vendors every year between 2000 and 2009. Records show the state has paid Greer Industries about $31.7 million in that time.
Greer Lime and Greer Limestone also received a combined $709,000 in state work during those years.
Greer Industries has been awarded about $2.4 million in contracts from the federal government between 2000 and 2009. That's according to the website FedSpending.org, a database run by the nonprofit government watchdog group OMB Watch.
According to news releases, many of those federal contracts were for Greer to provide quicklime for water treatment plants in cities including Washington, Baltimore and Fort Bragg, N.C.
Greer Limestone and Greer Asphalt have also done businesses with Morgantown in recent years, finance reports posted on the city's website show. That work ranges from roughly $18,000 in 2002 to about $382,000 in 2007.
Manchin and Raese clashed on federal spending at a televised debate last week.
The governor said federal earmarks are crucial for West Virginia infrastructure needs - such as water, sewer and Internet broadband service - in rural areas where the private sector won't invest.
Manchin campaign spokeswoman Lara Ramsburg called Raese "hypocritical" for taking public contracts while criticizing government spending.
His criticism, she said, is "just another example of him not telling the truth and trying to divert attention from benefits that he and his companies receive" from the government.
Democrats have slammed tea party-backed Republicans in other states for taking government money while blasting public spending.
Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky, for instance, is an eye doctor who has said half of his patients are on Medicare. Senate candidate Joe Miller of Alaska came under fire for taking farm subsidies in the 1990s.
