    School Employee Union Recommends Republicans

    The Michigan Education Association is the largest public school employee union in the state. This election cycle, the candidates that it recommended won 93 of 103 contested races, including 71 of 79 that ran for the 110-member state House of Representatives.

    A large majority of the labor union's recommendations traditionally go to Democrats. However, 11 of 43 Republicans who will be seated in the state House of Reps this January carried this MEA recommendation. Their names are:

    Richard Ball, Kevin Green, David Hildenbrand, Rick Jones, James Marleau, Tim Moore, Tory Rocca, Gail Haines, Eileen Kowall, Paul Scott, and John Walsh.

    How might this alter public education policy in the new Michigan legislature?

     it will be interesting to see exactly where, on the sliding scale of conservative to liberal, these people stand.

     shouldn't the fact that the unions democrat politician mill recommended republicans generate a huge backlash from the leftist loyalists who don't see a problem donating billions of dollars to democrats but see a HUGE problem donating a single cent to republicans?

    you bet it should.

    but it WON'T.
