Nevada, Big Labor’s Firewall

Big Labor is targeting failed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Senate seat as the “firewall” in their strategy to keep the pro-Big Labor congressional majority in power this November. Five other states including California, New York, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania will be ground zero for political spending this Fall. 

The Wall Street Journal’s Kris Maher reports:

The AFL-CIO is planning its biggest political campaign ever this year, surpassing the $53 million spent in 2008 to help elect President Barack Obama

Trying to avert a Republican takeover of both the House and Senate in the November midterm elections, the labor federation is focusing on a “firewall” of six states with key congressional elections and relatively high numbers of union households: California, New York, Illinois, Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
