Look for the union label

Posted By on Fri, Mar 12, 2010 at 12:59 PM

Here's the news on the first round of "independent expenditure" ad against Sen. Blanche Lincoln. It outlines her vote for corporate interests, such as the pro-credit card company bankruptcy bill and the first round of TARP spending.

It doesn't mention Bill Halter. This is the product of the union-backed campaign against Lincoln.

Solid, issue-based stuff and fair game. But I do wonder: Do the words TARP and NAFTA produce gut reactions in voters like the words gun or abortion or death tax or gay marriage do? Time will tell.

UPDATE: Lincoln responds with some good old-fashioned union bashing.

Halter, meanwhile, has hit the air with Arkies who just love the lottery.
