Political Forecast: IA-Gov: Blouin gets IFL nod 'unanimously'

Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast

This weekend, the Iowa Federation of Labor endorsed Mike Blouin for governor. You can find the Register story here, where it claims the vote was unanimous. However, that isn't what I'm hearing.

I have heard that there some very contentious debate and some backroom wheeling and dealing that ultimately led to the vote to endorse Blouin. Moreover, procedurally, there might have been a move that was taken to stifle opposition in order to make the vote appear unanimous, when in fact, it wasn't.
