AFL-CIO ramps up direct mail campaign

Another mailer goes after Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), a freshman who is facing off against former Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.), whom he defeated in 2010. 

"Frank Guinta is part of a systematic attack on working families," who wants to cut education funding and workers' pensions to pay for "tax cuts for the wealthy and increase profits for CEOs," the mailer alleges.

Gubernatorial races in Montana, New Hampshire and Washington, along with state legislator races in Iowa, Kentucky and Maine, are also getting attention from the labor federation.

Each recipient of a mail piece from either the AFL-CIO or Workers’ Voice will receive a robocall from labor before and after the mail piece was sent.

The AFL-CIO has endorsed President Obama for reelection and is seen as a key ally for Democrats. Labor is expected to help turn out voters in November, and could be a difference-maker in several key races.
