Oh, let's hope!!
The high turnout produced success at the polls last November. Obama soundly trounced anti-worker GOP nominee Mitt Romney - whom labor successfully cast as a job-destroyer - and Democrats gained two U.S. Senate seats, even though they had 23 seats to defend, compared to 10 held by the anti-worker GOP.

Pro-worker Democrats also gained U.S. House seats, but not enough to flip it. Podhorzer says GOP-run redistricting after the 2010 census netted the Republicans 15 House seats nationwide. The GOP controls the House 231-200, with four vacancies.

But with more than half of the nation's governors up next year, and with past battles in the states showing the importance of those seats, labor is turning its focus there, Saunders and Podhorzer say.

Topping the agenda will be the ouster of Right Wing Republicans such as Scott Walker of Wisconsin, John Kasich of Ohio, Rick Scott of Florida and Rick Snyder of Michigan. All used their posts to kill workers' collective bargaining rights, push anti-worker so-called "Right to Work" laws, or both, plus other anti-worker measures.
