WASHINGTON (CNN) – The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees – a 1.4 million-member union that backed Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary – endorsed Barack Obama for president Thursday.
“AFSCME will mobilize more members and invest more resources than ever before to help Senator Obama win the White House,” AFSCME President Gerald McEntee said in a statement. “We will turn out an army of 40,000 AFSCME activists to knock on doors, make phones calls and talk with their co-workers and neighbors to produce an unprecedented turnout in the 2008 election.”
The backing of the nation’s largest public service sector union comes in the midst of a series of meetings in Washington this week between Obama and major labor leaders.
Any unions backing McCain???
Don't come knocking on my door! Texas for McCain!!!!!!!
That's right, Demos Unite!
What fools, they should stay as far away from Obomba as possible.
I feel confident that McCain will win this election.
Democrat for McCain
welcome on board the mccain ship is about to sink
Good it's more for the ticket, and more for Americans to have real change.
ALL OUR BUTTER, BREAD & GAS AT STEAK.
WE WOULD RATHER HAVE BUSH IN OFFICE
FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS.
Sounds good to me!!
See ya McSame!!
I'm suprised no one is commenting on this topic.
I just saw McCain driving the Straight Talk Express through my neighborhood. Weird thing is that he kept making U-turns. He said something about demonstrating his policies...
Is there anyone on this entire planet that would expect a frigging union to do anything different?
Unions would back Bill Ayers the terrorist before they would cross party lines. Unions controll democraps, they cannot controll Republicans.
Wake Up America!
It appears Barack will need all the help he can get to fight the McCain lies. Just an hour ago McCain called Obama a LIAR saying the conversation about public finance never took place. Now...it did take place but is was a discussion and not a negotiation. Get real McCain.
Thanks for supporting Barack and truth AFSCME!
That's a good news. This Union has a lot of members. They'll help you.
Go Obama!!! You'll win in November Election. You'll be a next 44th President Of the United States.
This is great! We the People will take back our country!
I was a Hillary supporter and still am. I am not voting this election because I don't think ether canidate can do the job. Good thing he has more backers because he won't get my vote.
The media is saying women are coming behind Obama is another ploy to get women to change their minds. Not the women I talked to.
Good Job of putting the country first!
God bless you unioneers, you rock! I agree with you TheTruthHurts, although I have not really heard much Hillary bashing in the last few weeks so I'm not sure what some of the posters are talking about. I hope all will go well between Obama and Hillary supporters, God bless all Hillary supporters.
Any union worker should vote for Obama.
Republicans are anti union, but the union people are the only ones today that can take care of their family with one parent working (member of a union), dont even believe this stupid libretarion clap-trap. That is why we are in the position we are, de-regullation.
The writing is on the wall... McCain should just concede now and endorse Obama for his run against Bob Barr :)
No surprise here. This is what Dems do best, We unite out of necessity.
CNN.............AFSCME will mobilize more members and invest more resources than ever before to help Senator Obama win the White House,” AFSCME President Gerald McEntee said in a statement. “We will turn out an army of 40,000 AFSCME activists to knock on doors, make phones calls and talk with their co-workers and neighbors to produce an unprecedented turnout in the 2008 election...........MOVE ON .........INGORE MCSAME Cindy and Republicans ......I am amazed that Cindy McCain is still talking about (A campaign event in FEB) regarding Mrs Obama and Mrs Laura Bush was so Kind .......Now Cindy you need to move on .......you begin to sound like a parrot
Welcome aboard. Let's unite!!
People wake up When God opens one door no one can close it, and when God closes one door no one can open it. It's time for an 'Change, Unity among all walks of life we are livng in perilous times for sure. I just beleive if you elect MCCAIN as president there may not be another election. b
I can't believe that there are actually people criticizing Obama for having a union endorse them. Like Joe Six... A union endorsement is not lobbyist money and doesn't require any IOU's. You're an idiot.
unions forever no cheap labor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
