April 2008 – Jane Harman Denied L.A. Labor Endorsement

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor turned thumbs down on U.S. Representative Jane Harman, who represents Venice, even though she has no opposition in the June primary.
A committee of the Federation, which represents 300,000 union members in L.A. County had recommended endorsing Harman, but the union delegates voted not to endorse by more than a two-thirds margin.

Harman’s support for NAFTA, the Iraq war, her sponsorship of HR 1955 on domestic terrorism and her opposition to Universal Heathcare led the delegates to oppose endorsing her.
