State Senator Darren Soto has received the endorsement of LiUNA, the Laborers’ International Union of North America, in his bid to be the next member of Congress from Florida’s 9th district. The group represents 500,000 construction workers nationwide.
“Our members are committed to being part of the solution when it comes to growing the economy and delivering jobs – and Darren Soto will help us have a seat at the table,” said Dave Brier, Business Manager of LiUNA Local 517. “Darren has worked to protect Florida’s jobs and hard-working, middle-class families in the state legislature, and he’ll do the same in Congress.”
Soto is running for the Orange/Osceola county seat that was left open after incumbent Alan Grayson made the decision to run for Senate. Other candidates in the talent heavy Democratic primary include Grayson’s Wife, Medical Researcher Dr. Dena Grayson, Congressional District Director Susannah Randolph, and Businesswoman Valleri Crabtree.
“I’m honored to stand with the men and women building America every day,” said Soto. “In Congress, I will make sure that working families have a seat at the table every day. I’ll fight to protect them in Congress and never back down from any fight.”
