The Florida AFL-CIO, which represents many of the state’s labor unions, is reaching out to Republican members—urging them to vote Democrat in the presidential election.

Rich Templin is the group’s public policy director.

“We’re talking to those members. We’re reaching out to them in a very patterned, systemic way and what we are hearing back is they’re done. They’re done with the chaos. They’re done with everything that they’ve been through over the past four years.”

Templin says nearly 40 percent of union members registered to vote are registered as Republicans.

Tomorrow marks exactly a week left before Election Day on November 3. All early voting sites in the state must close by November 1.
