Business groups to target Hodes over Labor Day

The Hill is reporting that business groups will target Democrat Rep. and Senate hopeful Paul Hodes during the Labor Day break with events designed to highlight his record on workplace issues:

Business groups plan to go on offense against vulnerable Senate Democrats in their backyards to mark Monday’s Labor Day holiday.

Local groups will target Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Rep. Paul Hodes, the Democrat running for Senate in New Hampshire, and Kentucky Senate Democratic candidate Jack Conway in their states over their record on labor-related issues.

Local chapters of groups like the National Federation of Independent Business, state Associated Builders and Contractors, and other commerce and retail gropes will hold events on Monday targeting the incumbents and candidates, particularly on their stance on the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA, or “card check”).

The events are part of coordinated efforts by the business groups to put pressure on Democrats on Labor Day, a national holiday traditionally celebrated by the organized labor community.
