Democrats Hit McCain on Ohio Jobs
John McCain says he'll push for congressional hearings into the potential loss of 8,000 jobs at the Wilmington, Ohio DHL shipping operations center. This comes as Democrats have seized on the candidate's ties to efforts to bring DHL to Ohio in the first place, and the former work of his campaign manager, Rick Davis as a lobbyist for DHL's parent company.
The DNC has produced this Web-only video called "Job Killing John:"
The McCain campaign has downplayed the situation, noting McCain's vow to investigate. But we've noted before that these Web-only productions often evolve into traditional TV spots. Considering the Buckeye State's battleground status and 20 Electoral Votes, the DHL incident could become a big distraction that requires frequent explanation not only in Ohio, but along the rest of the campaign trail.
