trumka2AFL-CIO, unions target potential Trump voters

The nation’s industrial labor unions, led by the AFL-CIO, are beginning a major grass-roots effort to target members who are thinking of supporting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The nation’s largest labor federation wants to be a bulwark against the real estate billionaire in Rust Belt battlegrounds that could pave his path to the White House.

The campaign, which ramps up this week and next, will include digital ad buys, door knocking and phone banking and is expected to reach between 5 million and 6 million voters in key swing states, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said in an interview.
