The Service Employees International Union will officially back Democrat Mark Dayton’s bid for governor on Tuesday morning. The 30,000 member union will announce it’s supporting Dayton at a news conference at the State Capitol.
The union’s endorsement isn’t a surprise and SEIU’s Luchelle Stevens said the union’s PAC Board decided before the August 10th primary to back whoever won the primary. Stevens said the union wanted to hit the ground running to support Dayton, Margaret Anderson Kelliher or Matt Entenza.
The union did not endorse a candidate before the primary.
