The Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council endorsed Gordon Ball, according to a news release from the Democratic candidate’s campaign.
“Gordon shares many of the same values as our members,” TN AFL-CIO President Gary Moore said in a prepared statement. “He knows that anyone working a full-time job should not be struggling to make ends meet. A ‘Made in Tennessee’ agenda is a strong part of his economic platform, and it’s evident that Gordon’s focused on keeping and creating good jobs in our state.”
Ball said he looks forward to working with the TN AFL-CIO “to create better jobs [and] fight for the rights and interests of workingmen and -women so we can expand the middle class.”
Ball faces Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander in the Nov. 4 election.
