Labor Fuels Ohio GOP Legislative Campaigns

From the Columbus Dispatch: “Continuing a trend that has grown more pronounced each election cycle, union money poured into Republican legislative campaigns in 2017. In fact, four of the GOP’s top five political action committee donors were unions: operating engineers ($502,600), affiliated construction trades ($264,800), laborers ($214,750), and plumbers and pipefitters ($196,000).

Add in carpenters, building and construction trades, and electrical workers unions, and they make up seven of the top 20 PAC donors to legislative Republicans.” 3/1/2018
