Change To Win Targets Blanche Lincoln With Direct Mail Campaign

Views

The labor consortium Change To Win is targeting Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) with a direct mail campaign. The flyer credits her with helping assure that the stimulus bill survived in the Senate and tells recipients to “ask Senator Lincoln to do the right thing” and vote for the Employee Free Choice Act.

David Kinkade of The Arkansas Project got his hands on a copy.

Labor groups have been targeting Lincoln pretty consistently since she came out against the original language of EFCA earlier this year. Last week, workers held a 24 hour vigil at Lincoln’s office in Little Rock. And AFL-CIO’s director of organizing Stewart Acuff says Lincoln has received 14,000 handwritten letters from workers and small business owners across Arkansas.
