Labor group backs Sweeney

Senate Majority Leader Stephen Sweeney won the endorsement of the New Jersey State building and Construction Trades council for Senate President today.

Council President William T. Mullin said the group endorsed Sweeney, a labor leader, because he “stands among the very best that New Jersey has to offer in these times of unparalleled economic hardship for so many of our working families.”

Sweeney announced today that he has the votes to topple Senate President Dick Codey (D-Roseland).
