RICHMOND, VA— Today, congressional candidate Elaine Luria earned major political support of working people across southeastern Virginia with the endorsement of the Virginia AFL-CIO.
“The Virginia AFL-CIO is proud to endorse Elaine Luria’s campaign for Congress,” said Doris Crouse-Mays, President of the Virginia AFL-CIO. “The people of the 2nd Congressional District need a representative who will advocate for the kind of policies and reforms that will strengthen the rights of Virginia’s workers. Elaine has said time and time again that she will fight for increasing minimum wages, expanding job training, and providing better retirement security. Elaine Luria has made it clear that she is a strong supporter of organized labor, as she believes in empowering working people. We are excited to work with her as the next Congressperson from the 2nd District to push back against the anti-union agenda that threatens our nation’s hardworking men and women.”
Elaine Luria added, “Working families, the heart of our District and country, should be prioritized. I will fight for workers’ rights and ensuring our seniors and veterans get the benefits they have earned.” She continued, “The support of the hard-working members of the AFL-CIO to knock on doors and make phone calls to voters, is part of my fight for every vote until November 6.”
