Altogether, the candidate accumulated the support of 72 local unions.
Among these backers are the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters, which is comprised of two District Councils as well as 52 local unions. Stack also won the support of the AFSCME District Council 47 and their nine local affiliates and the four locals of the Labors’ District Council of the Metropolitan Area of Philadelphia and Vicinity.
“For the past 13 years I have been honored to represent one of the highest density union member working family senate districts in the Commonwealth,” Stack stated. “Their issues are my issues, always have been and always will be. I am deeply grateful for such overwhelming support.”
The first poll on the Lt. Governor’s race in months was released by Harper yesterday. It showed Stack in the lead with 20%. He held only a two point advantage over his nearest rival, though, and nearly 42% of voters are undecided. It appears his campaign hopes this strong showing of labor support can help their candidate get over the top.
Other Democratic candidates for Lt. Governor include former Congressman Mark Critz, Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski, State Rep. Brandon Neuman and Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith.
