Campaigning like it’s 2004: Outsourcing re-emerges as election-year issue | Al Jazeera America

Todd Rehm, a Georgia-based Republican political consultant, said the line of attacks fits neatly into Democrats’ messaging that the GOP is out of touch with voters’ needs and favors corporations profiting off of the woes of Americans workers. Rehm noted that Republican candidates around the country could do a better job of communicating their economic policies in a way that resonates with the middle class.

“You can talk about how when a company is faced with low cost imports decimating its market, how outsourcing can be a way to keep some of the jobs,” Rehm said. “That is absolutely a weak spot among a lot of Republicans that come from a business background — they speak about creating a favorable business environment in a way that doesn’t connect with the likes of a lot of people, especially wage workers.”
