Illinois AFL-CIO General Election endorsements


Springfield, IL – More than 100 union delegates from throughout Illinois met here last week to vote on recommended endorsements for the Nov. 6 General Election. Final endorsements were voted on by the Executive Board.

Highlighting the endorsements were statewide candidates Jesse White (Secretary of State), Kwame Raoul (Attorney General), Susana Mendoza (Comptroller) and Mike Frerichs (Treasurer).

JB Pritzker and Juliana Stratton (Governor and Lt. Governor) were endorsed by the Board in April.

Also endorsed were congressional candidates in nationally targeted races, including Sean Casten (6th Congressional District), Brendan Kelly (12th Congressional District), Betsy Dirksen Londrigan (13th Congressional District) and Lauren Underwood (14th Congressional District).

The COPE and Executive Board also issued endorsements for the state legislature, which has been a strong backstop to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s anti-worker agenda.

“Affiliates and delegates and have evaluated the candidates and the issues and we’ve made decisions based on who will support unions and all working families,” said Illinois AFL-CIO President Michael T. Carrigan. “Now we implement the Labor 2018 plan to educate and mobilize the 1.5 million voters from union households toward victory in November.”
