Teamsters To Endorse Obama

With a lot of the focus of the Democratic presidential contest now shifting towards labor-heavy OH and PA, it’s significant that Barack Obama is picking up an endorsement from the Teamsters. This gives him endorsements from four of the seven unions of the Change to Win coalition (one, the Farm Workers, has endorsed HRC), and increases the possibility that the entire coalition could make its first-ever joint endorsement. Clinton, however, still has the lion’s share of endorsements by AFL-CIO unions, though not enough to make a federation joint endorsement likely.
