Iron Workers endorse Krupp

Marge Krupp, the Democratic candidate for Congress, earned another endorsement, this time from the Iron Workers union. It's a good sign for Krupp's campaign, which is trying to win a Democratic primary to challenge Paul Ryan in the fall. Krupp has also received endorsements from the National Organization of Women, the Women's Campaign Forum and Women's Action for a New Direction.

Here's her statement on the Iron Workers:
PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wisconsin - As her campaign to unseat incumbent Congressman Paul Ryan continues to gain momentum, Marge Krupp, the Democratic Candidate for Wisconsin's First Congressional District, today earned the endorsement of another labor union. The International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, an AFL-CIO associate, and their 140,000+ members have endorsed Marge Krupp in her run for U.S. Congress.

Krupp said of the endorsement, "We are absolutely thrilled over the Iron Workers decision to endorse us. The coalition of labor, which now includes the Iron Workers, behind my campaign is a testament to the efforts of organized labor to help turn the 1st District from Red to Blue." The Iron Workers are the fourth labor union to endorse Krupp before the primary election on September 9th. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the International Longshoremen's Association, and the American Postal Workers Union are the other three to pledge support to Krupp's campaign. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers have also contributed generously to Krupp's campaign.

Krupp has also earned the endorsement of three national women's political groups: the National Organization for Women, the Women's Campaign Forum, and Women's Action for a New Direction. No Democratic primary opponent challenging Krupp has earned any endorsements.


  1. The endorsements of those groups is enough reason NOT to vote for her.

  2. How big is that outfit, there like a circus travling the country.

    She should sticking to goat milking. She is good at that
