The AFL-CIO is including three of Minnesota’s congressional races in a nationwide direct mail campaign aimed at supporting Democratic candidates.
The districts include Minnesota’s 8th, 6th and 2nd. The mailers, which are not coordinated with the campaigns, target the Republican incumbents there for their records on jobs, education and social security.
Here’s one going out in the 8th Congressional District, a tight and closely watched race between Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack and his DFL opponent Rick Nolan.
More than 26,000 of these fliers will be mailed in the 8th. About 22,000 residents in the 6th and about 19,000 in the 2nd district will get similar mailers.
