Iowa Labor Activists to Run Ads for Dean
The advertisement, set to appear in Monday's editions of The Des Moines Register, says Dean is "the only candidate who will stand up for what we believe and isn't afraid of what Washington thinks."
At a news conference Thursday, 136 labor activists unveiled the ad and announced their support for Dean in the nine-way Democratic primary. Tom Gillespie, president of the Iowa State Building and Trades Council, said he was committed to Dean because the former Vermont governor has argued for increased domestic spending.
