The Arkansas AFL-CIO has endorsed Dianne Curry of Little Rock, the Democratic candidate for 2nd District Congress. In a release, she said she'd spoken at the labor group's convention May 13 on the labor movement and the right of workers to organize.

In a letter addressed to the Brothers and Sisters of the AFL-CIO, Alan B. Hughes, President of the Arkansas AFL-CIO, wrote that the endorsement of Dianne Curry, “was based on her ability, qualifications and her position on issues of primary interest to working men and women.” Hughes continued, “it is very important that we give Dianne Curry all of our support and help in any way possible to win this race.”
Curry is a former Little Rock School Board president.

I probably should add that had Republican incumbent French Hill gotten the vote for an endorsement by the AFL-CIO he would have demanded a recount.

Some quick ideas on that:
