(Video) Labor ad targets Minnesota Congressman Cravaack on jobs bill
American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is launching a television ad against Chip Cravaack this week targeting his opposition to Pres. Barack Obama’s proposed jobs bill.
“Despite this week’s vote in the Senate, millions of Americans are still out of work, the middle class is still under attack, and the corporate-backed politicians don’t have a plan to create jobs,” AFSCME President Gerald W. McEntee said in a statement on Thursday. “Americans are reclaiming their voice in a Main Street Movement that spans from Madison to Columbus to New York to cities across the nation. Washington can help them by passing the American Jobs Act now.”
Cravaack has said he opposes the jobs bill, but is facing pressure in the district to support President Obama’s proposal. Earlier this week, residents held a “jobs vigil” to convince Cravaack to vote for the jobs bill.
