The union that represents the largest share of state workers has endorsed Democrat Jack Hatch in the 2014 race for governor.  Danny Homan is president of AFSCME Council 61, which represents about 40,000 workers from all levels of government in Iowa. “We believe that Senator Hatch is the best candidate for working men and women in the state of Iowa, to help move this state forward,” Homan told Radio Iowa in a telephone interview.
