After the anti-Saloon League made sweeping victories in the 1908 Ohio state elections, Andreae organized effective resistance to the temperance movement, he soon organized and became president of The National Association of Commerce and Labor to fight temperance organizations on the national level. It largely employed former state Senators and Representatives to further its work.[2]
