Deeds Wins SEIU Support

Anita Kumar

The first endorsements of the general election are starting to roll in.

Today, Democrat Creigh Deeds won the support of the Service Employees International Union, which has more than 5,000 members in Virginia. SEIU will be the first in a long line of labor unions standing behind Deeds.

"Hardworking women and men simply cannot afford to slip any farther behind in this economy, and they want their next governor to not just understand their concerns but to fight for them,'' SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger said. "Senator Deeds has an impressive record fighting on behalf of working families and has earned his reputation as a consensus builder who the working families of Virginia can count on."

I'm sure SEIU's large donation to Deeds occuring the same day Tim Kaine granted their FOIA request was just happenstance -
