"Two Million Member Labor Federation Endorses McNerney

The California Labor Federation announced its endorsement of Jerry McNerney for Congress at its Pre-Primary Convention in Oakland. Over five hundred delegates from around the state came to vote on labor's official endorsement for elected offices from Governor, to state and federal offices, and ballot measures.

The Federation is the umbrella group for labor in the state, and includes both AFL-CIO and Change to Win unions. The Federation has pledged to put its powerful campaign resources behind Jerry to defeat Richard Pombo in November."

Here's an article on the endorsement from The Record.


On a side note, Phil Angelides was endorsed by the California Labor Federation AFL-CIO over DLC democrat, Steve Westly for Governor of California. (Source) Congrats to Angelides as well.

*Updated 3/16: I just wanted to add; Matt over at Say No To Pombo has an excellent analysis of the major labor endorsement for McNerney. Read it Here.
