Gov. Chris Christie this morning scored the endorsement of another trade union, this time receiving the nod of the International Brotehrhood of Electrical Workers local 1158.
The group represents some 3,500 employees in the public and private sectors.
“IBEW Local 1158 endorses Governor Christie because he has proven that while we may not always agree with every single decision he makes, we are confident that we will always have a seat at his table to share our collective voice and that he will not only hear us but will listen to what we have to say when it comes to the future of our membership, their employers and our state,” the group said in a statement.
The union has endorsed Democrats in the past three gubernatorial elections and is one of several organized labor groups to endorse the governor in his bid for re-election.
