Coal is a major employer in Pennsylvania’s southwest. Tom Smith was a card carrying UMWA member when he worked as a heavy equipment operator on surface coal mines. Tom then went into the coal mining business and is an expert on coal mining economics and coal mining safety. Tom has gotten his hands dirty with coal. I am not sure that Bob Casey was ever in a coal mine.Republican National Committee Attacks Obama (and, by inference, Sen. Bob Casey) on Coal.
