AFL-CIO; We Own Lincoln, Pryor and Landrieu

Greg Sargent is reporting that the AFL-CIO is saying that they have the support of three key Senators, Blanche Lincoln, Mark Pryor, and Mary Landrieu.
On the call today, a reporter asked Samuel: “Are you confident that you have Lincoln and Pryor?”
“Yes, we’re confident,” Samuel replied. Later in the call Samuel was asked the same about Landrieu, and he again replied Yes.

Hmm, sounds like they are very certain they have Sens. Lincoln and Pryor sewn up. Given all the dancing around the issue the Senators have been doing it's not really that big of a susprise. I guess Sen. Lincoln must owe somebody in the AFL-CIO big time to endanger her seat by supporting the unpopular Employee Free Choice Act.
