Colbert-Busch’s Union Push No Big Surprise


A Big Labor payback that is nothing short of outrageous, but no big surprise.  Betsy Woodruff has the story in National Review Online.


On a dreary, humid Sunday in front of a Charleston library named for her father, Elizabeth Colbert Busch and Representative James Clyburn (D., S.C.) talked up organized labor in this right-to-work state, hoping to stir the Palmetto State’s Democratic base to turn out in Tuesday’s special House election.

Leaders of organized labor seem to have a lot of faith in Colbert Busch’s ability to work things out. The Sanford campaign noted that, according to an FEC report filed on Sunday, she has received more than $100,000 from unions, including funds from the union group that tried to keep Boeing from building a plant in South Carolina.
