What Unions Should Do?
One Republican in the halls thinks that organized labor is missing a no-brainer… campaign contributions limits initiative petition. The issue, this person thinks, is a 70-30 issue, maybe even an 80-20 issue. All they’d have to do is get it on the ballot and the issue sells itself.
Once limits are established, it would hamper the current crop of statewide Republican hopefuls who have become dependent on five and six figure checks from a narrow base of donors. Unions, themselves meanwhile, with their apparatus of various “locals” have a built-in infrastructure which can circumvent the limits.
