Maybe Reconsider Importance of Endorsements
In the end, all of those union endorsments might not do Kathleen Falk any good. The former Dane County executive proudly touts endorsements from basically all of the unions in her run for governor in the Wisconsin recall election. La Crosse county democratic party chair Vicki Burke says those early endorsements often simply amount to recommendations to union members and maybe shouldn't be taken as seriously as Falk sees them
Falk collected early endorsements from unions as soon as she entered the race for governor with promises to restore collective bargaining to public unions. That was months before Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett entered the race.
