The nation's largest health care union has released a new pro-Obama television ad that is airing in six battleground states, including four states covered by MidwestPolitics.com.
The Service Employees International Union, which represents 2 million working people and 50,000 retirees, announced Sunday that it is spending more than $2 million on the new television ad campaign that focuses on what's at stake economically for millions of American families in the upcoming presidential election.
The ad, titled "Family," features a mother talking about the strain of trying to provide for her family in an economy defined by higher costs, lower wages, and lost jobs. The ad goes on to detail the stark differences between Barack Obama and John McCain when it comes to jobs and the economy.
The ad is airing in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Mexico, Iowa and Wisconsin.
