EDITOR'S NOTE: Rep. James Comer has one of the worst labor voting records in Congress. The latest AFL-CIO Legislative Scorecard, which shows where "lawmakers stand on issues important to working families, including strengthening Social Security and Medicare, freedom to join a union, improving workplace safety and more," shows that Comer voted the union position on legislation 10 percent of the time last year and 12 percent of the time he's been in Congress. When he ran for governor in 2015, Comer said if he won he'd make passing a "right to work" law "his first priority." (He lost in the GOP primary to pro-RTW Matt Bevin.) Comer is a co-sponsor of HR 1200, a national RTW law. Also, Comer voted against the PRO Act.
