A union-backed group will run a television ad critical of Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) Tuesday after he responds to President Obama’s State of the Union address.
The group, A Working Person Like You, is funded by unions and opposes a proposed right-to-work law in Indiana that is riling labor groups in the state. Daniels backs the proposed law.
The television ad shows a clip of a speech Daniels gave to a local Teamsters union in 2006. In the speech, Daniels said he was not interested in changing labor laws in Indiana.
“I'm a supporter of the labor laws we have in the state of Indiana. I'm not interested in changing any of them. Not the prevailing-wage law, and certainly not a right-to-work law,” Daniels said in the speech.
