Dems Seek Union Help Paying for Convention

Obama senior advisers are asking labor unions to cover some of the costs of the Democratic convention in September, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

Because of a self-imposed ban on corporate donations, Democrats need some help from the country’s major unions to pay for the convention. The unions include the AFL-CIO, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the United Auto Workers.


Democrats are about halfway to the $36.6 million price tag on the convention in Charlotte, N.C., Bloomberg reports. The convention is being held at the Bank of America Stadium on Sept. 6.
