Word is that Rep. Jeff Roorda, running in Senate 22, received the AFL-CIO endorsement. His Republican opponent, Rep. Paul Wieland, vied for the endorsement and has a generally positive labor voting record, so there was the possibility that the big organized labor group would sit on the endorsement fence. It’s a nice win for Roorda.
And he has a labor fundraising event tonight. Lead sponsors ($5K+) are the Saint Louis Police Officers Association, and Laborers Local 110. Other hosts are: Missouri NEA, CWA District 6, MO State Council of Fire Fighters, Teamsters Local 688, Missouri State Teachers Association, Sen. Gina Walsh (President Missouri State Building Trades), St. Louis Building Trades, Amalgamated Transit Union #788, Schuchat, Cook & Werner Law Firm, UFCW 655, Rognan & Associates CPA, Missouri State UAW, Laborers Local 42, St. Louis Port Council, Gas Workers Local 5-6, and IBEW Local 1.
