AFL-CIO Begins Final Phase of 2016 Campaign
Ground game and digital blitz to target millions of union households and allies
In the final days before the election, the AFL-CIO will drive a powerful grassroots program and launch a digital ad blitz to union households and allies. The final stretch of the campaign is underlined by speaking with millions of voters at the doors and on the phones, delivering millions of mailers and a six-figure digital ad buy in battleground states.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka began the countdown to election day with a new video message that makes the closing argument for Hillary Clinton.
“The case for Hillary Clinton stands on its own,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “We are not choosing the Apprentice. We’re electing the leader of the United States of America. Hillary has the ideas, experience and drive to transform our economy into an engine for shared prosperity.”
In addition, the AFL-CIO will roll out digital ads on ten prominent media sites in the battleground states of Florida, Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Readers of the Las Vegas Review Journal, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Orlando Weekly, Tampa Bay Times, Jacksonville FOX-WFOX, Jacksonville First Coast News, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Columbus Dispatch, Toledo Blade, Philadelphia Inquirer and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette will see the ads which redirect to a new landing page. You can view the ads here: http://bit.ly/2fgcrrG.
Starting Monday, union members and allies can help build a symbolic wall around the White House to keep Donald Trump out at www.StopTrump.org.
In Philadelphia, radio ads on African American stations will build on the AFL-CIO’s Black voter program and encourage turnout in the community.
Nearly half a million mailers and 1.4 million slate cards listing pro-worker candidates will reach union households in key states by Election Day. All three AFL-CIO officers will continue their rigorous travel schedule across the country to engage with union members in battleground states including Florida, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
