Unions losing election in Wisconsin Democratic primary for governor

Daily Beast:

Wisconsin and national unions have donated almost $4.5 million to a super PAC backing Kathleen Falk, the former Dane County executive who has pledged to veto any budget that doesn’t restore collective bargaining.

But with just a few days left before the primary, Falk trails 2010 Democratic nominee Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, 38 to 21 percent among primary voters, according to a Marquette University Law School poll (considered the most reliable in the Badger State) released last week. Barrett also supports restoring the collective-bargaining rights unions have lost, but has said he’d do so through a standalone bill, an approach that would provide significantly less leverage with legislators.
