Democrats' New Pro-Labor Ad Shows Expansion of Union Movement

The Maddow blog points out this new ad from the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee targeting the Indiana GOP's agenda to kill union rights: 

Governor Mitch Daniels, Indiana's version of Scott Walker, gets called out heavily in the clip, but asTPM notes, it's not only about his anti-worker tactics. The national Dems are linking labor movements in Indiana, Wisconsin and Ohio, ramping up the fight and targeting Daniels' presidential aspirations as Indiana Dems enter their fifth week outside the state. It's a smart move politically, to be sure, but it also underscores which side of the line the DLCC wants to be associated with when the worker's revolution reaches fever pitch -- the correct one.

The ad will run in the Indianapolis metro area starting today.
