Meg Whitman Protest: Hundreds Of Nurses Protest Outside Of Candidates House

The LA Times reports:

The race for governor comes to Meg Whitman's house Thursday as 1,000 members of the California Nurses Association descend on the Republican nominee's hometown of Atherton to deliver the candidate a "special message": Back off.

The march follows an aggressive effort by Whitman's campaign to peel off rank-and-file support from the union, which has endorsed Democratic rival Jerry Brown. Whitman's campaign is appealing directly to nurses through phone calls and mailers while attacking the union's leadership, accusing officials of mischaracterizing her positions on key health care issues.
