Kentucky State AFL-CIO president

We are down to the wire. 

This is where all of the hard work pays off. 

The final contacts and conversations with union members and their families. 

We have been monitoring what our opponents have been doing to get their candidates elected.  We know they have been sending tons and tons of mail containing the usual lies and distortions.  We know they have been spending huge on television ads to distort the message and image of our candidates. 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Kentucky State AFL-CIO endorsed McKenzie Cantrell.

Today on "AM Joy," her MSNBC TV show, Joy Reid asked documentary filmmaker and author Michael Moore the question that has perplexed me throughout this presidential campaign.

Why do many white, blue collar workers apparently support Republican Donald Trump for president?

The presidential election of 1800 ended up a tie between Thomas Jefferson and his running mate, Aaron Burr.

Yep, that’s right. Back then, the candidate who got the most electoral votes was president, and the second place finisher was vice president. Jefferson and Burr got 73 apiece.

Jefferson and Burr were Democratic Republicans. They beat President John Adams and his running mate C.C. Pinckney. They were Federalists.

EDITOR'S NOTE:  Here are a couple of relevant Donald Trump quotes:

We must have strong borders and not let illegal immigrants enter the United States. As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants.

They have to go.
