Ami Bera’s Trade Conundrum Worsens

California Democrat Ami Bera has now faced nearly a month of constant attacks and protests from labor unions for his tepid support of fast-track authority for trade agreements, which began when he plagiarized his op-ed with White House talking points. Today, the AFL-CIO escalated the attacks even further, launching a brutal television ad criticizing Bera.

Given the union’s recent threats to primary his friend Scott Peters, who hasn’t even announced his position on the legislation, Bera must be extremely worried about a possible primary challenge next year.
