Remember controversial Alaska Senate candidate and tea party darling Joe Miller? He’s back… and attempting to influence the vote to override Gov. Lynch’s veto of so-called right-to-work legislation.
In March, Miller took over as chairman of the Western Representation PAC, a Nevada-based political action committee with strong ties to the tea party movement. Miller says the PAC, which spent over $230,000 in independent expenditures for 2010, is seeking to expand its influence.
Despite being formed fairly recently, the PAC was able to gain strong support and make an important impact during the 2010 election cycle. We plan to build on that great start and bring the voice of ‘We the People’ to bear even more as we move towards 2012.
Western PAC has now set its sights on the Granite State. Today, they offered a preview of a radio ad set to air in “targeted districts” with the goal of pressuring New Hampshire legislators to override Gov. Lynch’s right-to-work veto.
The ad falsely describes the right-to-work bill as “legislation that would make it illegal to force workers to join a union as a condition of employment” and pretends to be local saying “the time has come for us in the Granite State” to enact right-to-work.
