Well, this is encouraging.

LANSING — UAW President Bob King today sought to downplay concerns over his union’s support for the candidacy of Democratic candidate Mark Schauer in the Michigan governor’s race, telling reporters “Mark will make a great governor” and an endorsement is pending.

“I expect the UAW will come out with a strong endorsement of Mark Schauer,” King said Wednesday in Detroit at the Automotive News World Congress.

lol.

In further Bob King news (4.00 / 1)
The News is reporting that Bob King was working behind the scenes to mount a coup against Brady Hoke to return Rich Rod to Michigan.

I'm far less concerned about Bob than many of you are, and particularly if he ends up unionizing one of the plants in the South on his way out.  This is about as far as we've gotten with breaking into the South in many years.
