Unions spend more than $1.5 million on VA election

Analysis by Americans for Limited Government shows that two unions alone have spent more than $1.5 million dollars cumulatively trying to influence the Virginia state election.

The SEIU which represents both private and public sector employees has spent more than $1.28 million on the top three Democrat candidates and the Democratic Party of Virginia.

Not surprisingly, Democrat nominee Terry McAuliffe has refused attempts to get him to commit to retain the Commonwealth’s right to work law, and this latest analysis reveals why.
