Unions are getting behind a green candidate
So as not to let Labor Day go by unacknowledged, let’s check in with the unions.
Edwards has, however, gotten endorsements from the carpenters, steelworkers, and mineworkers unions. As Brad Plumer notes, the latter is a particular feat given that Edwards has called for a moratorium on new coal plants. (I would say "new coal plants without sequestration," but that would be redundant.)
According to the campaign, Edwards now leads the 2008 presidential pack in union support.
