A left-leaning military veterans group is spending half-a-million dollars on canvassing efforts to boost Democrat Joe Sestak's Senate campaign.
VoteVets.org said the campaign literature would be "blistering" in its message, comparing Republican nominee Pat Toomey to Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and implying that Toomey puts financial industry interests above those of military servicemembers.
"What do Iran's President and Pat Toomey have in common?" one piece asks. "Both would keep America dependent on oil."
Some of the literature will also mention Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-8) and Democrat Bryan Lentz--two other military veterans in tough races this year.
