The AFL-CIO will be running anti-Toomey ads on Facebook. Those ads will then redirect people to petitions demanding that Senators strengthen the Voting Rights Act, support infrastructure investment, reform the tax code, and oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Rick Bloomingdale, President of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, declared that Toomey “fails to stand up for working Pennsylvanians. Whether he’s supporting bad trade deals that destroy our jobs or allowing billionaires to pay lower taxes than nurses and teachers, Senator Toomey leaves working people out in the cold.”
The ads are part of a larger group that will be also targeting the Senate races in Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, and Wisconsin.
These latest ads come as a recent PPP poll showed Pat Toomey with only a one point lead over challenger Katie McGinty, 40% to 39%.
