Our campaign kickoff and headquarters open house event is less than 48 hours away but I wanted to share some breaking news with you.
Today, the United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 862 announced their endorsement for our campaign and belief in my ability to create the jobs that Louisville needs. The UAW's endorsement is hugely significant, as the union represents more than 10,000 active and retired members in the Louisville area.
On top of that, an impressive coalition of very strong state and local elected leaders from the South End of Louisville banded together to endorse my candidacy. This group, consisting of Kentucky State Senators Denise Harper Angel and Perry Clark; Kentucky State Representatives Larry Clark, Charlie Miller, and Ron Weston; and Shively Mayor Sherry Conner, will be in attendance on Saturday to announce their support for our campaign.
