2006 Election

Back in 2006, trade and offshoring were wedge issues actively used in 115 congressional campaigns nationwide, with more than 25 paid campaign ads run on these issues. Election exit polls conducted by CNN and The New York Times revealed that Americans' anxiety about the economy and job security trumped Iraq war concerns. Public Citizen released a report. Several special elections between 2006 and 2008 also favored fair-trade candidates, including May 2008 special elections in Louisiana and Mississippi.
