McAuliffe wins Union endorsement.
Well, I suppose hanging out on picket lines finally paid off for millionaire Terry McAuliffe. Today, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the largest union in the AFL-CIO, endorsed his candidacy.
I just wonder what he had to do to get their endorsement? This is an important question for Virginia voters to ask. Did millionaire McAuliffe promise to support card check? Did he promise the union bosses that he would try to repeal or at least undermine Virginia's Right to Work Law?
The endorsement will clearly help his chances at buying/winning the Democrat nomination. However, in the general election it not only won't help, it may make it easier for the Republicans to claim that millionaire McAuliffe is anti business and beholden to the special interests.
