This shouldn't be news, but labor will back Dem primary winner against Walker

This shouldn't even be news, but with all of the machinations going on, it comes as a relief.

[AFSCME's Rich Abelson] said unions hope the primary winner will have the best chance of beating Gov. Scott Walker adding unions will support that candidate -- even if it’s Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett...

“I’ve had my differences with Mayor Barrett, some of them public, some of them private,” Abelson said. “But the fact of the matter is Gov. Walker and Mayor Barrett are nothing alike.”

Now all we need is an agreement from the candidates and the unions not to trash each other in the primary.
