Maggie Haberman, Politico.com, reports:
The labor union AFSCME, along with SEIU and the pro-Democratic candidate House Majority PAC, are pooling resources for a $400,000, four-week ad buy against Iowa Rep. Steve King, officials said.
King is facing a challenge from former Iowa first lady Christie Vilsack. This is the second ad the three are airing on her behalf.
Apparently it’s still “politics as usual,” with Big Labor, despite declining membership. Forced dues keep the money flowing regardless of membership figures.
