The Iowa Republican: Culver and the labor unions -- An interesting pattern emerges

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

A year ago, it was well reported that Chet Culver and the labor unions
were at odds with each other. The major dust up back then occurred
when Culver vetoed one of the labor unions' top legislative
priorities: open-scope bargaining. Since then, it seems as if Governor
Culver and the labor unions have made up. The following is a list of
labor groups that contributed to Culver in 2008. Great Plains Laborers
District Council - $70,000.00; Iowa State UAW - $47,500.00... The
$227,900.00 that the labor unions donated to Culver makes up almost
22% of the total dollars his campaign committee took in for 2008.
