Wow, one Republican out of 29 candidates. Of course the AFL-CIO doesn't have a bias. Who would assume such a thing?!

King has always gotten the endorsement. He lost it. This is HUGE.

This endorsement is HUGE. It will bump Mejias up to at least 37% come November.

Considering that King has done well with Unions before & the AFL-CIO has been a big supporter of Unions in the past this is a big deal. this isn't like an organization that has endorsed other Dem candidates over King in the past is endorsing the Dem candidate again. This is an organization (a major one at that) which has endorsed King MANY times in the past, and now isn't.
