Posted September 5

With just over two months to go until Election Day, many headed to the big UAW picnic in search of support from the unions.

What has been a marathon election season in the race will now quickly become a foot race to the finish line.

Candidate spent the holiday working hard to make a good impression on the labor unions. Several have already secured endorsements from the local unions, but on one is taking that for granted.

With no less than eight highly-qualified candidates, and the polls indicating seismic shifts in support at any given time, the race is certain to end in a runoff in November.
