The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) announced on Oct.23 that Hillary Clinton has earned the 1.6 million member union’s endorsement in the 2016 presidential contest.
“The next president will make decisions that could make or break the ability of working people across America to sustain their families. That’s why we spent the last six months engaged in the most member-focused, in-depth, and transparent endorsement process AFSCME has ever undertaken,” said AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders.
The endorsement, by the 1.6 million-member AFSCME, enables Clinton to claim support from groups representing the majority of the nation’s 14.6 million union members. More from Brian Mahoney here: http://politi.co/1NuJT5B
