Hoping to tap into deep voter anxiety about unemployment and the stumbling US economy, Democratic and Republican Party candidates have launched a wave of new attacks accusing their rivals of helping ship US jobs overseas.
On the campaign trail and in television ads ahead of November 2 elections, dozens of Democrats have charged that Republicans support free-trade deals and tax breaks for corporations that cleared the way for the migration of US jobs to foreign countries.
Republicans have countered with ads in 10 House of Representatives districts accusing Democrats of sponsoring jobs overseas by backing tax breaks for clean energy that mostly went to foreign companies in the $814 billion stimulus bill.
