Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries picked up yet another union endorsement this morning, this time it’s the Transport Workers Union of America Local 100.
The endorsement, first reported by Crain’s Insider, landed on top of a big pile of labor support, including SEIU 32BJ, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500 and Communication Workers of America District 1. Most notably, he’s also been endorsed by the Working Families Party, a group that could theoretically provide a general election ballot line in addition to troops on the ground.
Assemblyman Rory Lancman’s campaign rumbles on.
