CHICAGO - The Chicago Federation of Labor released their endorsements for the November 4th election, and they are urging their members to support and work for Democrats in all statewide races except one - State Comptroller. For that spot, they recommend Judy Baar Topinka, a Republican.
The group endorses all five of the advisories on the statewide ballot, including support for the millionaire's tax, the minimum wage hike, the birth control mandate, No ID voting, and crime victims' rights.
At the congressional level, the CFL endorsed all Democrat incumbents in the U.S. House, and did not support any Republican incumbents nor candidates.
At the State Senate level, they endorsed all Democrats. In the State House, they endorsed all Democrats with one exception - State Rep. Mike McAuliffe, the only Republican House member representing a Chicago district.
The only other Republican they endorsed is Cook County Commissioner Peter N. Silvestri.
