Businesses Rally Workers Against Tea Party

Businessweek looks at efforts by companies to encourage their employees to vote for establishment Republicans.

"The aim of the corporate coalition is to avoid the nomination of untested candidates who could hurt Republican chances of taking control of the Senate away from the Democrats in November, as happened in the 2010 and 2012 elections. Republicans need a net gain of six seats to retake the chamber. It's also a mission to boost candidates who are better steeped in and more supportive of the business community's agenda, including ensuring that the nation doesn't default on its debt."
