AFL-CIO Heads Calls Scott Walker National Disgrace

The president of the largest alliance of unions in the United States offered just six words in response to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker formally jumping into the 2016 presidential race.
“Scott Walker is a national disgrace,” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said in a statement released ahead of Walker’s formal announcement on Monday.
There isn’t much love to lose between Walker and unions. As the Wisconsin governor has geared up to run for president, he’s repeatedly called attention to his record of fighting unions in his state and his support for right-to-work legislation. Supporters have also highlighted Walker’s ability to overcome a recall effort supported by unions, a victory that thrust him into the national spotlight and electrified conservatives.
