In it, but not of it. TPM DC
STATEMENT BY ARKANSAS AFL-CIO PRESIDENT ALAN HUGHES
In response to Senator Lincoln's hypocritical, flip-flopping ad Arkansas AFL-CIO President Alan Hughes issued the following statement:
"It's a sad day for working families in Arkansas to see Senator Lincoln continue to descend into yet another hypocritical, flip-flopping DC politician.
"Lincoln has ignored the interests of working people in Arkansas too many times. It's easy for her to try to paint opponents as outsiders, but working class voters in Arkansas can see as well as anybody that she has turned her back on us.
"Only someone who has become a career politician in Washington DC could spend ten years asking for our support, take hundreds of thousands of dollars from blue collar workers, then turn around and attack us as 'outsiders' because we wouldn't help her this time around. That's not the values people in Arkansas believe in."
