SEIU Launches New Health Care Attack Group
The Service Employees International Union has put together a new group to launch health care ad campaigns targeting specific members of Congress who voted against Democratic reform plans--the Foundation for Patients Rights. So far, they're going after four lawmakers, spending $400,000 on the first week of TV ads against Reps. Patrick Tiberi (R-OH), Mike Castle (R-DE), Mark Kirk (R-IL), and Mary Bono-Mack (R-CA). With Castle and Kirk, the new group might be getting more bang for its buck, as those two are the leading GOP candidates in their states' respective Senate races. See the Castle ad here.
