AG candidate Jon Richards endorsed by SEIU

From my email inbox comes news that Democrat Jon Richards’ campaign to become Wisconsin’s next Attorney General has been endorsed by the Service Employees Internation Union (SEIU).

MILWAUKEE— Wisconsin Attorney General candidate Jon Richards today announced the endorsement of the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU is the nation’s largest and fastest growing union, and their endorsement confirms the trend that Jon Richards is receiving the strongest support from organized labor of any candidate in the race for Attorney General.
“Jon Richards has been a champion for workers during his time in the State Legislature, and he’ll be a champion for working people as Attorney General,” said Dian Palmer, President of the SEIU State Council. “Jon brings the strength and experience needed to keep Wisconsin families safe and protect the rights of workers. Jon Richards is the best choice for Democrats in the primary election and he is the best choice for Wisconsin voters in November, and that is why the SEIU is proud to endorse Jon Richards for Attorney General.”
The SEIU is the third statewide union to endorse Jon Richards for Attorney General. The 
United Steelworkers and Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Healthcare Professionals have also endorsed Jon Richards, along with the Milwaukee Building & Construction Trades, ATU Local 998 and Workers United 1122.
“I am proud to have earned the support of the SEIU and the hard-working men and women they represent,” said Jon Richards. “Rights in the workplace have come under assault, and I’ll continue to do everything I can to make sure workers are treated fairly and with dignity. Under my leadership, the Department of Justice will stand on the side Wisconsin’s middle-class families to ensure the law is enforced.”
