The Republican – Massachusetts Congressman Ed Markey endorsed by Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union in Senate race

Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Edward Markey has landed another endorsement in the race to replace John Kerry in the U.S. Senate.

The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union said it is supporting Markey over his competitors because of his position on a number of issues relating to the retail industry.

“Ed has stood with us on key issues important to an overwhelming majority of working people in Massachusetts, including worker protections, immigration, health care issues and creating jobs for the working class,” said Stuart Appelbaum, RWDSU President, in a statement. “Ed Markey has been an advocate for improved health care and tax laws which close loopholes for the wealthy.”
