Well, this is making things interesting:
U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff has won the support of two of Colorado’s largest labor organizations.
The United Food and Commercial Workers, which represents 23,000 members statewide, and the Colorado Council of Teamsters, with 16,000 members, endorsed Romanoff’s primary bid.
it seems these two groups have decided to endorse early as a statement of their choice for the Senate Race.
“Local 7 of the United Food and Commercial Workers is proud to endorse Andrew Romanoff,” said Kim Cordova, the union’s president. “Andrew has always stood by Colorado working families and the 23,000 members we represent.”
Steve Vairma, president of the Teamsters, praised Romanoff’s dedication to Colorado and all of its citizens. “Andrew Romanoff was always straight with us,” Vairma said. “We didn’t see eye to eye on every issue, but his door was always open, and we could trust him to tell us the truth.”
Romanoff said he was proud to have earned the organizations’ support. “Millions of Coloradans are working hard just to make ends meet,” he said. “Now, more than ever, they deserve a champion in Congress. Yet too many senators seem more interested in their own job security than in ours. That’s unacceptable. Washington’s pay-to-play politics is costing us the jobs we need and the health care we literally can’t afford to live without.”
