A national labor organization will send a mailer supporting Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mark Udall to tens of thousands of registered voters and unions members this week.
On the heels of the DSCC announcing its exodus from the Colorado senate race last week, Change to Win — a coalition of seven unions, including the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters — reported that it will send more than 49,000 mailings to Colorado voters in support of Mark Udall, who is running against Republican Bob Schaffer for a seat left vacant by Sen. Wayne Allard.
The ad focuses on the economy and states that Udall is a “strong voice for Colorado working families” who believes in an “investment in homegrown manufacturing jobs” via alternative energy.
Mailings will start to be shipped on Tuesday, according to Change to Win, which boasts a total of 6 million members nationwide. While a tally of membership numbers in Colorado is currently unknown, it’s clear that the coalition has at least 5,000 members in the state.
A a Rocky Mountain News-CBS4 poll of 500 registered voters released Sunday night showed Udall leading Schaffer by 12 points.
