    Dem angst as unions split money - By Alexander Bolton, The Hill, DC
    Rep. John Sweeney (R), the Democrats’ No. 1 target in New York, has won the endorsement of the local affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America and of the Albany affiliate of the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO, Sweeney’s campaign says.

    Union political action committees had given Sweeney’s campaign $105,000 by the end of March, more than he had received from any other special interest. He received $10,000 contributions from the Laborers’ Union, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the International Association of Fire Fighters, according to politicalmoneyline.com, a website that tracks fundraising.
