What is a "Lunch Pail" Democrat?
Advertisements [?]
I got a call from a pollster last night, asking questions about the candidates for Rep. Marty Meehan's (D-MA) seat in the House when he resigns in September.

One of the questions was "Would I support a Lunch Pail Democrat". My response was "Huh? Never heard of the term".

Anyone know?
