State Senator Marty Connor announced he got the endorsement of UFCW Local 1500, a union that backed his opponent in 2006.
The union picked Connor without conducting an interview with either the senator or his opponent, Dan Squadron.
According to an email from a Connor spokesman, union president Bruce Both explained: “You will notice that this endorsement was given without our Union requesting an interview. We do so based on your strong record of supporting workers rights, preserving our middle class and helping working families. We are confident that you will do so in the future.”
A call to a UFCW 1500 spokesperson was not immediately returned.
