Filling the Halls of Power

From the AFL-CIO

A week after the defeat of “right to work” in Missouri, working people are riding a wave of momentum across the country. This week, working people in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Connecticut secured primary victories for several of our proud union brothers and sisters.

Yesterday marked a watershed moment for working people in three states, as union members secured nominations for federal and statewide office. Here are a few of our brothers and sisters who came out on top:

Tim Walz (AFT-NEA)—Nominee for Governor, Minnesota


Julie Blaha (AFT-NEA)—Nominee for State Auditor, Minnesota


Randy Bryce (Ironworkers)—Nominee for the 1st Congressional District, Wisconsin


Jahana Hayes (NEA)—Nominee for the 5th Congressional District, Connecticut
