After glowing praise from Dean Singleton early last week I was really curious to see where the major unions would come down on Mejia – a couple other people were too.
Dean Singleton may very well be the biggest union buster in Colorado. So when the Mejia campaign sent an email gloating Singleton’s backing I figured they could kiss all union endorsements goodbye. This is a logical conclusion, right?
Turns out I was wrong – AFSCME endorsed Mejia late last week. I still didn’t believe it, and so I checked Mejia’s website, Facebook Page, and googled “AFSCME Mejia.” Nothing could be found. But still, the grapevine keeps saying that AFSCME endorsed Mejia. Again, this is weird, right?
When the Teamsters endorsed Hancock it was quickly made public.
Same for when the firefighters endorsed Romer.
Is the AFSCME endorsement being buried, or has the grapevine lead me astray?
