Carpenters union builds support for Clark vs. Bachmann

Another labor group has weighed in for State Sen. Tarryl Clark, who is challenging Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the 2010 election.

The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters endorsed Clark this week. It has 13,000 members in Minnesota, including 2,447 in the 6th Congressional District.

“Tarryl Clark has been a proven leader for Minnesota’s working families,” said Kyle Makarios, political director for the council. “It is important to have someone in Washington who is advocating for workers, especially in this time of economic hardship.”

As would be expected, other labor groups, including Teamsters and AFSCME locals, have already jumped on the Clark bandwagon.
