This is it!

The last weekend before Election Day. 

Time for GOTV… GOTV… GOTV. 

For months we have worked to identify union members and their families that will vote for the labor-endorsed candidates.  NOW is when we MAKE SURE that these voters go to the polls next Tuesday!

Democratic President Barack Obama has endorsed McKenzie Cantrell in her race against Republican Rep. Denny Butler in the 38th House District in south Louisville.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Kentucky State AFL-CIO endorsed Reps. Kay, Flood and Westrom.

Rep. James Kay, Rep. Kelly Flood, and Rep. Susan Westrom are Democratic candidates running to be re-elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives. They are hard-working state representatives who stand up for their communities every day in Frankfort, and were just endorsed by the Lexington Herald Leader!

The Union Auto Program is currently up in Kentucky with a network of dealers offering domestic brands in Louisville, Lexington, Florence, Corbin, Nicholasville, Versailles, Henderson, and London.

“With approval from Kentucky AFL-CIO President, Bill Londrigan, we are reaching out to you with hopes that you will spread the word to your members,” said a spokesperson for the program. “We are encouraging members to stop before they shop anywhere else and see if Union Auto Program™ can help them save more.”

What do Sen. Mitch McConnell, an official Ku Klux Klan newspaper and onetime Klan leader David Duke have in common?

They’re in Donald Trump’s corner.

NOTE FROM BILL LONDRIGAN, KENTUCKY STATE AFL-CIO PRESIDENT:  Trade Unionists, Friends and Supporters: While we have not engaged the presidential campaign many of you have had to deal with the Hillary v. Trump question.  Of the volumes of negative stuff about Trump in the public sphere, we have forwarded only a small amount of that information to you.  However, as November 8 rapidly approaches, I thought you would appreciate yesterday's Washington Post editorial about Trump.
