      to keep it friendly - but as someone with a front row seat to the trade unions they were rabid about "their guy" "one of us" and it got a little ugly.

      I actually wrote a few diaries and didn't publish them because they were focused on ugly stuff about Lynch.

      Concerned those union guys will either vote for the republican or not vote.
      This was so personal for them.
      btw the percentage of women in those unions is ridiculously low....

      The firefighters are another union who might go R - we need to get them on board.  I didn't talk to friends involved in that union after they endorsed Lynch- figured I'd just wait till after the election - hope they join the ground game...

      Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

      And in the last one, second in two days, Markey pushed back a bit.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
