WASHINGTON — The National Council of Textile Organizations wants to hit politicians where it hurts: in the ballot box.
Officials from the new lobbying group forged by fabric and yarn makers launched their organization Tuesday on Capitol Hill. With a contentious election year in full throttle and the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs a key campaign issue, the NCTO is angling for Congressional and presidential politicians to heed their calls for action.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
