International Pours Money Into Sestak Political Ads and Ground Game
The Hill’s Sean Miller reports that an international Big Labor conglomerate, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), says it will pour an additional $2 million into ads and ground forces to help Joe Sestak against Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race. Neither disclosure of SEIU sources of its funds (such as foreign & domestic forced-union fees) nor disclosure of SEIU personnel expenses were included in the report.
With a new poll showing Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak edging in front in the Senate race, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) announced it will spend $2 million to help him across the finish line.The SEIU cash will go to its get-out-the-vote effort in support of Sestak and Democrat Dan Onorato, who’s running for governor. The campaign includes a member outreach program and an independent expenditure (IE) effort, according to a release. It will focus on grassroots mobilization through canvassing, direct mail and phone banking.
“We’re out talking to voters every day about the importance of electing leaders like Dan Onorato and Joe Sestak who understand the needs and priorities of working families,” Gabe Morgan, SEIU Pennsylvania State Council president, said in a statement.
