Labor's 2nd choice may face Walker - POLITICO.com Print View

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has become Big Labor’s public enemy No. 1, but they‘ll likely have to settle for their No. 2 choice to replace him. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is poised to pick up the Democratic nomination Tuesday to face off against Walker in the highly anticipated June 5 recall election. …. While labor groups say they tried to stay positive during the race, some went on offense during what became at times a contentious primary. AFSCME Wisconsin toned down its criticisms of Barrett last month after sending members to an online video implying that Barrett supported Walker’s stance on collective bargaining. ….. Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, said his union has at least 20 field locations around the state that have been assessing how to transition to backing Barrett for the past 10 days.
