WASHINGTON — The AFL-CIO’s Democratic Aug. 7 presidential forum in Chicago will be a mega-event now — at Soldier Field, with up to 15,000 people expected.
It will also be a dramatic, visual display of the strength of union members, one of the most important Democratic constituent groups.
Wow, that’s a big crowd. Puts a lot of pressure on union organizers, eh?
