NH AFL-CIO PRESIDENT BRACKETT'S STATEMENT
ON HILLARY CLINTON ENDORSEMENT
HOOKSETT—New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
“The choice in this election is stark. Hillary Clinton has fought for American families and their ability to make ends meet throughout her career in public service. She knows that workers are the backbone of our country and her commitment to our nation’s working men and women is reflected in her record of fighting for higher wages, better workplace protections, and the elimination of the wage gap.”
“On the other hand, Donald Trump is a fraud who has actively worked to stiff his own employees in order to make himself richer. He gets up in front of crowds and makes them believe that he will fight for them. When in reality, we know that he has spent his life stepping on whoever he needed to promote and elevate himself–even when it meant lying and taking from working folks. I am proud that the AFL-CIO is supporting a candidate like Hillary Clinton who will work to build an economy that works for all of us.”

The AFL-CIO will not be handing out their endorsement in the 2016 Presidential Primary, at least not yet. This comes from an email that President Trumka sent to members that was obtained by various news outlets. In the email President Trumka stated:
“Following recent discussion at the AFL-CIO’s Executive Committee meeting and subsequent conversations with many of you, I have concluded that there is broad consensus for the AFL-CIO to remain neutral in the presidential primaries for the time being and refrain from endorsing any candidate at this moment.”
Under the AFL-CIO’s procedure, if the Executive Council gives an endorsement recommendation, the endorsement must be ratified by leaders of the federation’s member unions. President Trumka also stated in the email that the Executive Council would “continue its ongoing discussion” about the 2016 campaign.
