The vote by the DC 37 delegates came following the recommendations of the DC 37 Screening Committee and DC 37 Executive Board.

"We believe these candidates will best represent the interests of the labor community of our city and our state. With our endorsement comes a pledge to work diligently on their behalf with our powerful, sophisticated field operations to get out the vote. We have a proven record of successfully supporting our endorsed candidates."
