Group Takes Aim at Warner Over Unions
With Democrat Mark R. Warner holding onto a steady 30-point lead in the U.S. Senate race, there have not been many independent groups investing resources in Virginia this year trying to sway the outcome of his race against Republican James S. Gilmore III.
But the National Right to Work Committee has apparently decided to invest a least a little bit of money on television ads to try to undercut Warner's appeal.
The committee is airing an ad on Richmond television that calls into question whether Warner will uphold Virginia's status as a right-to-work state. The ad notes Warner has not come out against the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize.
Gilmore is a strong opponent of the proposal. Gilmore also received a boost today when he picked up an endorsement from the Richmond Times Dispatch. Although the endorsement was tepid, it marks his first endorsement from a major Virginia newspaper.
