Hoffa Nominates Ghost S-T Candidate

July 15, 2011: Hoffa lost his first running mate when Tom Keegel declined to run for reelection. At the Convention, the Hoffa Campaign nominated two Secretary-Treasurer candidates. What gives?

Union slates usually put their strongest candidate at the top. But Hoffa is the least popular candidate on his team.

Hoffa got paranoid that Fred Gegare would pull his S-T candidate, which would leave Hall unopposed and his name off the ballot.

Hoffa is desperate to keep Ken Hall’s name on the ballot. Maybe he’s afraid of having to debate Sandy Pope instead of sending Hall as his stand-in.

Ghost candidate aside, the next Secretary-Treasurer of the Teamsters Union will be Ken Hall. This election is about choosing the General President. Sandy Pope is the superior choice.
