The Council is made up a 15 unions, including workers in the Washington area who serve as plumbers, electricians, painters and roofers.

"Steve Shannon has fought for working families since his first day in the General Assembly, just as he did as a Virginia prosecutor," said Vance Ayres, Executive Secretary/Treasurer of the Washington D.C. Building Trades Council. "He will be a leader for Virginia families as our next Attorney General."

Shannon, who is so far running unopposed for the Democratic nomination, also recently picked up support from Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones and Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim.
