Union Mailer Landing In Key States

Hoping to swing voters where the swing matters most, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO is dropping 270,000 anti-McCain mailers into Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.

To get the sense of the demographic it's targeting, just read the mailer:

"I voted for George W. Bush because he promised to change Washington. I'm not falling for the same old line from John McCain." — Gary Lanahan, School Bus Driver, Vietnam Veteran, U.S. Marine Corps, Purple Heart

The brochure ends with a bold-lettered mantra: "No third term. No McCain." It's put out by Working America, an AFL-CIO organization for non-union members. AFL-CIO rank and file have already got some other mailers.
