AFSCME Endorses Farrell

I'll include a link as soon as this gets posted on the official web site.

Citing her commitment to working families, The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) today endorsed Diane Farrell for Congress in the 4th Congressional District. AFSCME represents some 35,000 workers statewide, and 6,000 employees in the 4th Congressional District.

I believe AFFSCME is her 4th union endorsement.


Also the Farrell campaign is now offering podcasts on it's web site. I haven't had a chance to listen to them yet, but this is the first time I've seen a campaign offer them. The one downside is that they don't seem to be available on itunes or Odeo yet.

Are any other candidates podcasting?

I tend to post based on what people talk about in the comments section. Labor comes up a lot so I figured there would be an interest.

Check out SurveyUSA's latest. Joementum is now negative on job approval amoung all Ds, and even more so among self-identified liberals. Here.

Some Lamont videos have been available as podcasts since early May.

The Feed URL is


This feed is supposed to also be available via iTunes, but I haven't checked that out.

However, most people have ended up using YouTube for Lamont videos, including the campaign.

As an aside, blip.tv, which is similar to YouTube makes their videos available as podcasts.
