The Director of Operations at the state's largest labor organization says it is actively working to change the dynamic of the governor's race in November -- after former state senator Mike Dunleavy prevailed as the Republican candidate in the August 21 primary.
"We are concerned that Dunleavy's anti-workers stance is bad for our members," said Joelle Hall of AFL-CIO, in a live interview on KTVA's First Take at Five Sunday.
The organization announced its endorsement of Gov. Bill Walker Friday, after previously suggesting that Walker and Begich team up on a ticket for office. Alaska AFL-CIO's President, Vince Beltrami, said the move could avoid a projected Dunleavy victory if the two candidates split the union vote.
