ORGANIZED LABOR-FUNDRAISING
West Virginia organized labor creates new independent fundraising arm ahead of election

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia organized labor has created a new independent fundraising arm ahead of the November general election.

According to a filing with the Federal Election Commission, the West Virginia AFL-CIO created the new federal political action committee "Honest West Virginians" in late June.

AFL-CIO treasurer Josh Sword told the Charleston Daily Mail that the group felt it needed to fight the flow of outside money affecting federal elections in West Virginia.

Sword says the amount of money "Honest West Virginians" raises will dictate how active the PAC is and the races it will focus on before the 2014 election.

The AFL-CIO already has a state-level political arm. Sword says he's focusing on the federal PAC now and will no longer work with the state-level organization.
