Union retracks Lentz endorsement


The Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters retracted its endorsement of Bryan Lentz, the Democratic candidate in the 7th Congressional District race.

"The Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters is retracting its endorsement of Bryan Lentz for Congress in PA-7.," states a message posted to the union's website. "The duty and goal of endorsements from the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters is to help elect those to office who share their commitment and values of helping working families of Pennsylvania. The Conference must endorse and support people who will work to fight for our member’s best interest, regardless of party preference. The Conference targets particular candidates and carefully utilizes resources to ensure that we have a representative in Congress that supports what our members and the working people of Pennsylvania need most. The Conference no longer finds that Bryan Lentz would be the best representative for its members in the 7th Congressional district and cannot continue to support his campaign for Congress."
