If labor unions want to prove that they’re more than just Democrat super pacs of a different name, Save Jerseyans, than stuff like this doesn’t help their case:
Just in. Breaking News AFL-CIO only endorses @VinceMazzeo for NJ Assembly Dist 2. Will Paul’s does not receive endorsement. Support & $$$

For those who don’t know, here’s a little LD2 background: Will Pauls (R-Hamilton Twp) is an incumbent Atlantic County Freeholder, the Republican President of the South Jersey Building Trades Council and a leader of Ironworkers Local 350 in addition to serving as a member of the AFL-CIO Central Labor Council of Atlantic City’s executive board.
He’s also running with Asm. Chris Brown (R-2) this year against Asm. Vince Mazzeo (D-2) and Freeholder Colin Bell. Senate President Steve Sweeney is an iron worker and, reportedly, is hopping mad over Pauls’s venture into legislative politics on the other side of the aisle.
