The NH AFL-CIO Announces Candidate Endorsements

Local unions have been endorsing candidates for the last few months.  With over 400 house races alone it is very hard to keep up with who has endorsed who.  Or maybe you are just looking to see what organizations support which candidates.

Almost all of the major organization in NH have come out in support of President Barack Obama, Carol Shea Porter, and Ann Kuster.

In the state races you may be surprised as some of the candidates that have been endorsed.  There are many Republicans and many Democrats who have been endorsed by labor this year.  Most of this comes from where they stood on Right To Work for less and a few other key bills in the last session.
