AFL-CIO Fights Back Against Toomey in Pennsylvania

After facing a barrage of attacks aired by outside right-wing groups, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) is getting a [bit of help](http://www.pa2010.com/2010/09/labor-targets-toomey-pa-house-races-in-mail-campaign/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+PA2010+(PA2010.com+Feed)&doing_wp_cron) in his Senate race in the form of a riposte, paid for by the AFL-CIO, against former Rep. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.):

A huge direct-mail campaign by the umbrella labor group AFL-CIO has Republican Senate candidate Pat Toomey in its crosshairs, along with four GOP challengers in Pennsylvania congressional races. [...]

The group’s mail piece against Toomey takes a familiar Democratic tack, painting the former congressman as someone who puts Wall Street’s interests above that of the middle class.

“Don’t be fooled by anti-worker U.S. Senate candidate PAT TOOMEY,” the mail piece says. “He went from being a Wall Street banker to one of the most anti-worker, anti-retiree, and anti-union congressmen in Washington. We couldn’t trust him then and we can’t trust him now.”

The mailer, which labels Toomey “anti-worker,” “anti-retiree,” and “anti-union,” can be viewed here. It’s bound to resonate among Pennsylvania’s union families, but the truth of the matter is that union membership, while still above the national average in Pennsylvania, has been declining steadily for over 20 years.

Suburban voters who voted for Obama, but don’t feel married to the Democratic party, will be the real swing vote in the election, and their general opinion of groups like the AFL-CIO is decidedly less positive. It will be interesting to see if visible union support can persuade middle class suburbanites that Toomey doesn’t have their best interests in mind, or whether it will simply solidify their beliefs that Sestak is the guy who’s out of touch with the mainstream.
