Democrat wants to end secret-ballot union elections

The state's largest labor organization is endorsing Mark Begich for U.S. Senate. The AFL-CIO represents more than 60,000 union members. The endorsement came this week at a special meeting of nearly 100 AFL-CIO vice presidents from around the state. Begich said he is honored to receive the support or Alaska's working men and women. He says the endorsement is another sign that his campaign reflects the priorities of working Alaska families.

Begich is hoping to unseat U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens who has been in office since 1968.
