The AFL-CIO is set to spend $40 million of its members' money -- a record for an offyear election -- on putting Democrats into Congress this year, according to the New York Times.

"Union leaders said they would concentrate their efforts on 15 Senate races, 40 House races and governors races in California, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania," says the Times. I'd sure like to know which House and Senate races those are.
