On top of endorsements from the Washington, D.C. Building & Construction Trades Council and AFSCME Council 20, Vincent Orange can now add the Metro D.C. AFL-CIO to his list. That's some heavy labor weight in his corner, surely more than Interim Councilmember Sekou Biddle, who has claimed the nod of the SEIU State Council and UNITE HERE Local 25.
Update, 12:45 p.m.: The Post's Tim Craig has the full story here. What's interesting is that Orange gets big support from both organized labor and big business, which means that he's either perfected the art of telling people what they want to hear or everyone just assumes he's going to win so they're jumping on-board. Whichever it is, it should make for some interesting dynamics should he win and should his biggest supporters start calling in favors.
