Edwards gets Steelworkers endorsement...

Yesterday as I was at our local Labor Day Parade that I covered for my local blog, I did not know as I watched the huge numbers of Steelworkers march in that parade that their national union had endorsed John Edwards.

I received this news this morning via an email from the John Edwards for President Campaign:

Dear Lisa Renee,

I hope you had a good Labor Day Weekend! John did—yesterday, he was honored to receive the endorsements of two of the biggest unions in the country — the United Steelworkers and the United Mine Workers of America. Combined with the support of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, John is now backed by more than 1.8 million union members and retirees—more than any other candidate in the race.

That is quite an accomplishment and I hope it brings more attention to Edwards being considered one of the front runners...
