And now, the Democrats

AFL-CIO chief John Sweeney will hold a press briefing at 12 noon today to detail the labor group's "election mobilization" efforts for the midterm elections.  As we reported earlier this month, the group plans to spend $40 million and will focus their efforts on 21 gubernatorial, 15 Senate, and 50 House races.  The AFL says this effort -- which they hope will reach more than 12.4 million voters in 21 states -- is the largest in their history.  Sweeney will discuss how they plan on making advances on workers' issues like the minimum wage and health care, and will present new polling information on other issues.
