This week, SEIU and partners continued their push to make sure candidates who stand with working people win by launching five new ads covering critical House and Senate races in Minnesota, Florida, New York and Nevada.

An ad in Minnesota's 8th congressional district, done in partnership with AFSCME, takes Tea Party Republican Chip Cravaack to task for his misguided priorities, including his vote to force seniors to pay more for their healthcare all while he supported taxpayer-subsidized healthcare for members of Congress for life.

An ad in Florida's 10th congressional district, done in partnership with House Majority PAC, derides Tea Party Republican Dan Webster for his out-of-touch priorities that call for increasing seniors' prescription drug prices and forcing them to pay $6,400 more a year for care.

An ad in New York's 18th congressional district, done in partnership with AFSCME, spells out what the Medicare plan of radical Tea Party Republican candidate Nan Hayworth means for seniors.

An ad running statewide in Nevada is the first independent expenditure Spanish language advertising in support of Representative Shelley Berkley's Senate campaign. "This election has enormous consequences for Nevada and the country because we cannot afford Dean Heller's extreme Tea Party right-wing agenda anymore," said SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Eliseo Medina.

1199SEIU members and retirees today announced the launch of an ad in New York's 19th Congressional District highlights Congressman Chris Gibson's loyal support of the extremist Tea Party agenda, including voting to end Medicare as we know it and cutting Social Security all while protecting tax breaks that help companies outsource American jobs.
