The Republican: Ed Markey’s senate campaign announces endorsement of Association of Flight Attendants

The Association of Flight Attendants has formally announced its support of Markey, citing the same voting record which Republicans are using to take jabs at the longtime congressman .

“Ed Markey not only voted consistently to honor our Flight Attendant heroes and all of the victims of 9/11 – he refused to allow their deaths to be politicized in the process. We are forever grateful,” said Sara Nelson, a Boston-based flight attendant and vice president of the union in a statement. “His record is long and his heart is in every battle. He listens to every issue the way he listened to the grief of hundreds of flight attendants in Boston who mourned the loss of our friends nearly twelve years ago.”
