The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters (MSCFF) has endorsed Lucas Kunce for U.S. Senate, joining a growing list of unions backing the Democratic candidate.
The MSCFF represents more than 7,000 fire fighters, EMTs, dispatchers, and paramedics across Missouri.
This marks the first statewide union endorsement for Kunce and speaks to his unique ability to earn the votes of independents and split-ticket voters. In the past, the Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters has endorsed Senators Schmitt and Blunt. This cycle, they have endorsed Lucas Kunce for Senate.
“Missouri fire fighters deserve to have leaders they can always count on to fight for them in Washington, regardless of party or politics,” said Demetris “Al” Alfred, president, Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters. “That’s why we’re proud to endorse Lucas Kunce for U.S. Senate, a Marine veteran who has dedicated his life to real service. If you know Lucas, you know that Lucas shows up — and our unmatched grassroots organization is ready to show up for him on the pavement and at the doors in our communities.”
