Wisconsin SEIU endorses Obama.

Good news for Obama...

The Wisconsin SEIU today endorsed Obama, citing his "commitment to expanding access to affordable health care and to protecting workers' rights," according to State Council President Dian Palmer in the release. The union has a little more than 15,000 members.

Spokesman Nathan Hoffmann said the union reached out to members through a phone poll asking which presidential candidate they supported and got input from local leaders and those who attended the members political conference in Washington, DC this summer. Then the nine members of the executive board, representing different parts of the state, voted by electronic ballot yesterday.

Let's not be discouraged, Obama supporters.

This election is far from over, and every bit of good news counts.

Re: Wisconsin SEIU endorses Obama.

Nice endorsement.  I consider it a great sign that we have three candidates who are competitive for union endorsements.

Re: Wisconsin SEIU endorses Obama.
Rock and ROLL...the news cycle gets better every day.

Let me see if I have the totals for SEIU state endorsements correct:

Edwards = 11
Obama = 5
Clinton = 0

Looks like someone has a little bit of catching up to do.
