Margaret Anderson Kelliher’s gubernatorial bid was served a nice endorsement from UNITE HERE, the union representing about 5,000 state workers in light manufacturing, hotels, restaurants, bars, food service, convention centers, airports and airline catering.

The House speaker’s campaign announced the endorsement Thursday.

Wade Luneburg, secretary/treasurer of UNITE HERE Minnesota, said:

“Margaret is simply the best-qualified person to do the job. She has navigated the best path through a very hard period in our state’s history, demonstrating great leadership as Speaker. She clearly understands our industry, the challenges of our members, and how that relates to our new service sector economy.”
