Essential Estrogen: It's Official: Firefighters Endorse Sen. Chris Dodd for President
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
There's been speculation, but today all rumor has been put to rest.
International Association of Fire Fighters General President Harold
Schaitberger will announce tomorrow that the Fire Fighters Union has
endorsed Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd in his bid for the White House.
There is no over-playing the boon this is for the Dodd campaign, which
seems to be gaining traction in Iowa and New Hampshire. The
firefighters were instrumental in Sen. John Kerry's success in 2004
and there's no reason to suspect the well-respected men and women who
make up that union will not add a huge boost to the Dodd campaign in
terms of both community activism and respect. This news, when combined
with higher polling numbers for New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and
added Iowa endorsements for Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, should give the
top three pause.
