Mitch McConnell's Vision for a More Impotent Union

Mitch McConnell's Vision for a More Impotent Union
Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Republican Party know all too well that a union vote tends to be a vote for the Dems. There's a reason why they use divisive issues like guns and religion to pry precious union votes from the other side of the aisle (66 percent of union members voted for Obama in 2012). It would also be fine if union members just stayed home on election day. However, if they do, this may be the last election that there's even a union for them to identify with.

Not exactly the kind of record you want to build on.

What's the Big Deal? US House Candidate Backed by Super PAC He Founded
A U.S. House candidate in Montana is benefiting from a political action committee he created, leading at least one opponent and some experts to question the legality of the peculiar arrangement. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL who is seeking the Republican nomination for Montana's lone congressional seat, created the Special Operations for America (SOFA) super PAC to back Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign. The committee now backs candidates who support the military — and their first candidate is Zinke, a 52-year-old former state senator.
