Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis continues to run a strong campaign as he trots out a new endorsement yesterday from an important group in the 13th District: the Coal Miners Labor Group.
The news for his opponent, Ann Callis, keeps getting worse. First, she is still trying to explain away the fact that she might not live in Illinois and now a key labor organization sides with Davis.
From Rodney Davis' campaign Facebook Wall:
Tonight I received the endorsement of the United Mine Workers of America’s Coal Miners Political Action Committee (COMPAC).
When it comes to coal and coal jobs, it’s personal to me. Throughout the years, I’ve seen how some of the biggest employers in this area have been forced to close due to the decisions and regulations coming from Washington and the devastation that has on area families and the local economy. So, I’m honored and humbled to have the support of area coal miners and their families, and will continue to fight on their behalf in Washington.#Guardiansofthe13th FTW!
