Sources tell West Michigan Politics that members of one or more local Unions are going door-to-door canvassing for Todd Courser’s bid to win his 82nd District House seat back.

Evidently, the Unions believe having Courser win will hurt Republicans and bolster the Democrats… 

WMP is working to confirm the identify the Union(s), believed to be Democrat affiliated...

They are also worried about looming changes to prevailing wage laws and believe Republicans will be weakened at the ballot box in 2016 if Courser pulls out a win, subsequently making a prevailing wage change even more risky during an election year if they already have to deal with Courser on the ticket.

Courser’s former foe Jan Peabody is the favorite to win, with County Commissioner Gary Howell also a top tier candidate

Also running in Courser's former district, the 82nd:

- Russell C. Adams, R

- Sharna Cramer Smith, R

- Jake Davison, R

- James L. Dewilde, R

- Rick Guerrero Jr., R

- Ian Kempf, R

- Allan J. Landosky, R

- Chris Tuski, R

- R.D. Bohm, D

- Margaret Guerrero DeLuca, D

- Eric Johnson, D

Stay tuned…
