The election is over but campaigning
in the advocacy world is just geting under way.
Take Big Labor, for instance. The AFL-CIO
is fanning out across the country
, holding about 100 events and delivering a message about the lame duck session that should sound familiar
The union will be in lawmakers' districts calling on them to "Protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security" and "End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthiest 2 Percent," said the union's Amaya Tune in an email.
"[The] election was a huge victory for working family candidates but we've always stressed it's important to then hold people accountable to those who voted for working family values," Tune said.
The events include handing out f
liers to commuters in Massachusetts and meeting
with Sen. Jon Tester
's staff in Montana, for example.
