As of this week, both Democrats running for the state house earned a nod from the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations.
District 63 challenger Courtenay Rogers and District 65 challenger Holly McCall picked up the endorsement. The group AFL-CIO represents the local United Auto Workers chapter 1853 at the GM manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, which sits in McCall’s district.
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the AFL-CIO and will fight for hard working citizens to earn a fair living wage in this state,” Rogers said. “It’s time we have elected officials who understand the challenges that these folks face every day.”
