House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher picked up another union endorsement today when the United Auto Workers of Minnesota joined her camp.

She’s the DFL-endorsed candidate for governor but faces competition in the Aug. 10 DFL primary from Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton.

Kelliher has picked up much, but not all of the state’s union support, getting laborers Wednesday, in addition to endorsements from teachers, nurses and professional state employee unions.

Dayton, though, has some labor support, too, with another state employees union, the steelworkers union, the police and peace officers union and Teamsters Joint Council 32.
