This is priceless. The SEIU wants to endorse one of our candidates that's running for Congress. Tom Stillings, an Icaucus candidate is vying for Bart Stupak's seat. Following is a copy of a letter from the SEIU, with the answer from Stillings. Now I am really glad Icaucus endorsed him.

"Right-to-work laws make less sense as businesses become more globalized. Right-to-work is not going to stop that globalization process."
Mr. Luke Canfora
Thank you for your solicitation. At first, I was somewhat confused at receiving it. It was then that I realized that you obviously know nothing about me.
Please allow me to enlighten you. I am your worst nightmare.
I am a firm believer in the Right to Work, and a strong proponent of Right To Work Laws. I abhor your actions in working with SENATOR ALLEN to use the force of state government to steal the hard earned dollars of those who provide care for the elderly .
Your union's thuggish tactics in support of a failed president's attempt to socialize our nation are symptomatic of a disease that true conservatives such as I will soon cure. If there is any justice left in this world, your organization and others like it, will in the words of a truly great American, "disappear into the dust bin of history.".
In short, please know that I would NEVER entertain or accept any endorsement or assistance from an organization such as yours. I hold the S.E.I.U in absolute contempt. You are a major player in an effort to destroy the character and capability of the greatest nation ever to have existed on the face of this planet.
Enjoy Marquette. Like the rest of Michigan it is truly a fabulous place this time of year, or any time for that matter.
Please be sure to say "hello" to Senator Allen for me. Since your event is the one place he can be sure I will not attend, he may take advantage of the opportunity to appear.
Candidate for Congress
Michigan 1st District
