Wal-Mart Campaigns for Dole in N.C.

Wal-Mart mailed a Dole campaign piece to 200,000 North Carolinans this week, 2 weeks before their primary. It also was sent to millions nationally.

The company said the campaign piece “was meant to promote literacy.” “There was nothing remotely political in the intent,” Jay Allen, a senior vice president of Wal-Mart, said on Friday.
