ACL-CIO endorses Walker for re-election

    Fairbanks, Alaska (KINY) Governor Bill Walker and former US Senator Mark Begish both courted the union vote in the campaign.

    Delegates attending the group convention Friday voted to back Walker.  A statement from President Vince Beltrami said both Walker and Begish addressed the convention delegates and explained their vision for the future.  The delegates voted to support Walker's second term.

    Earlier this summer Beltrami urged one of the two men to drop out of the race.  He said a poll showed that neither could win a three way race against republican Mike Dunleavy.
