AFL-CIO Airs Anti-McCain Ad Featuring Vet

A Vietnam veteran criticizes McCain for his record on the war in Iraq, veterans' benefits and more.

"Every vet respects John McCain's war record," says Jim Wasser, a Navy combat Vietnam veteran. "It's his record in the Senate that I have a problem with."


The ad will air Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. A source at the labor federation tells the Politico the buy is "significant."
