PA-12: McClelland Wins Labor Endorsement
Democratic Congressional candidate Eric McClelland received her first labor endorsement in the 2016 election cycle from the Pittsburgh Regional Building and Construction Trades Council.
“We are proud to announce that Erin McClelland has the endorsement of the Pittsburgh Regional Building and Construction Trades Council for the US Congressional 12th District seat,” said Business Manager Richard Stanizzo. “Her energy and passion for those issues that affect working men and women are very impressive and deserving of our support.”
“It is such a great honor to receive the support of the Pittsburgh Building Trades,” McClelland responded. “This is a council of many unions that create jobs, improve our infrastructure and keep this country moving forward. Their support is especially important in this District because of its growing infrastructure needs and opportunities that are simply being ignored by our Representative in Washington.”
McClelland was the 2014 Democratic nominee in the PA-12 race.
The 12th district consists of Beaver County as well as parts of Allegheny, Cambria, Lawrence, Somerset and Westmoreland Counties. GOP Congressman Keith Rothfus has represented the district since 2013.
