Whitman Continues To Seek Nurses’ Support in GOP Bid
GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman has sent more than 100,000 nurses a letter describing her support for staffing ratios and inviting them to join a campaign advisory board, while criticizing the California Nurses Association. However, union members said that Whitman is seeking to divide rank-and-file members from union leadership, and have dispatched protesters to her campaign events. Meanwhile, a CNA member has demanded that eBay -- where Whitman previously served as CEO -- release information on an alleged altercation with an eBay employee.
