AFSCME comes out strong on election day

On election day here in Minnesota, AF-SCME’s endorsed candidates swept the statewide races. AFSCME’s candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor, Tim Walz and Peggy Flanagan, beat out Republican Jeff Johnson, who’s said he’d love to “go all Scott Walker” on Minnesota. Members and leaders of Local 3800 talked to co-workers and neighbors, door knocked, and phone banked to help make this possible. Thanks to all who voted and who volun-teered.
