Lautenberg rolls out two new endorsements

Frank Lautenberg touted two new endorsements today in his Senate primary campaign against Rob Andrews: one from an environmental group and one from a union.

Lautenberg has the backing of Communications Workers for America District One.

"No one could possibly do a better job of representing New Jersey's working families in the U.S. Senate,” said Chris Shelton, the union’s vice president.

Shelton is feuding with CWA Local 1034 President Carla Katz, who last month endorsed Andrews for Senate. Katz today named Shelton in a lawsuit she’s filling against several branches of the union.

The League of Conservation Voters, a national environmental advocacy group, issued a press release supporting Lautenberg, noting that he voted with the group 96% of the time during the course of his Senate career. Rob Andrews’s lifetime score with the organization was not immediately available, but during the 110th congress he voted with the League 100% of the time, versus Lautenberg’s 93%.
