A Republican candidate for statewide office has drawn criticism for the union bug on his bumper stickers, according to this report ("Opponent snipes at Bolling sticker," 9/26/04) in the Richmond paper.
The article notes:
"The union label flap has occurred before. Republican Jim Gilmore destroyed stickers with a union label when running for governor in 1997.
Democratic Lt. Gov. Richard J. Davis of Portsmouth, seeking the Democratic nomination to run for governor in 1985, destroyed bumper stickers that did not have the union label."
