Two labor unions have endorsed U.S. congressional candidate Charles Dumas in his run against Rep. Glenn Thompson, the Republican incumbent from the fifth district.
The local sub-chapter, the retiree union, of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, voted to endorse Dumas Monday, according to a press release issued by the Dumas campaign Tuesday. The Pennsylvania AFL-CIO and National Organization for Women have also endorsed Dumas, according to releases on Dumas' website.
The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund endorsed Thompson earlier this month, according to the Friends of Glenn Thompson website.
