Campaign 2013: $10M Race For 3 Spots On LA Board
One reason for the multiple endorsements is that the candidates just turned in their paperwork and haven't been vetted. Last time out, the union had to withdraw endorsements when candidates' legal records were revealed.
Another reason may be that the union's 350-member House of Representatives switches over to a new group next month, and its views may be somewhat different than the current group.
All told, 15 candidates have filed paperwork and the three races are anticipated to cost $10 million, between direct contributions and independent expenditures from labor and reform allies.
