Two More Endorsements for Jerry McNerney
UPDATE 3/27: I have been informed that the vote at the South County Democratic Club was 67% in favor of endorsing McNerney.
This is just a quick update that the McNerney Campaign has received two new endorsements.
First, on Saturday, the McNerney Campaign was endorsed by the South County Democratic Club, which has members from Morgan Hill. This endorsement was first announced in this comment on Saturday, but I figured it should be brought up to the main page. I’m not sure what the vote was, but I have been told that the club has a 60% threshold to endorse, so it would seem like the club is solidly behind McNerney. We were told that Steve Filson gave a much better speech than McNerney at their candidates forum (in fact we were told that Filson “far outshined” McNerney), but I guess either the reports were overblown or else the club members considered different criteria than “shininess” when casting their votes.
Second, and more significant, the McNerney Campaign has just been endorsed by the California Teamsters Public Affairs Council, which represents 250,000 workers in the state. The Teamsters are part of the Change to Win Coalition and so they do not participate in the California Labor Federation (AFL-CIO) endorsement process. Consequently, this is another big endorsement for McNerney. (Hat tip readers CN and Hobie Dog).
