  1. Shes a Democrat, so NO! We need to vote those Tossers all out!

  2. There seems to be a pattern with most of these Democrats running for office: UNION ENDORSEMENTS. This means union LEADERS are supporting Radical Socislist Democrats.

    In the meantime newspapers like The Wall Street Journal are posting articles about how union MEMBERS continue to support President Trump and Republicans.
