The big national story today is the Washington Post's A1 connect-the-dots piece on Bain Capital's role in shipping jobs overseas -- the twist is Bain invested in companies that helped over companies outsource, rather than directly owning companies engaging in the process. After taking some heavy lumps from the Post for incorrectly calling Mitt Romney a "corporate raider" in its last ad in Pa, we can expect the Obama campaign to hammer on this story repeatedly in coming months.
Labor, and its role in presidential politics in Pa and other states, continues to make headlines. Politico goes over efforts by the AFL-CIO to incorporate education on new voter ID rules in Pa and other GOP-controlled states into its GOTV work. Former P-G staffer Alana Semuels has a piece at the LA Times going over the Supreme Court's ruling yesterday limiting the ability of unions to raise political funds.
PoliticsPa has two nice stories from the world of Western Pa congressional politics. Mark Critz and Keith Rothfus are in a new battle over entitlement spending that we're sure to hear all about through the fall, and Butler's Mike Kelly is a vocal critic (going on Fox News and elsewhere) of Attorney General Eric Holder and the failed "Fast and Furious" sting operation.
