One of the nation’s largest labor unions is unveiling plans to invest $150 million in a nationwide campaign to help defeat President Trump, a sweeping effort focused on eight battleground states and voters of color who typically don’t vote.
The investment marks the largest voter engagement and turnout operation in the history of the Service Employees International Union, which claims nearly 2 million members.

On Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced plans to open 15 “Black Voices for Trump Community Centers” in battleground states and major cities, including Michigan and Wisconsin.
“We don’t want to get too caught up in the Trump bashing,” Peralta said.
