Early Union Endorsements

Union endorsements are always a big "get" for Democratic candidates, especially when there are so many running for the nomination, anything that helps to differentiate one candidate from the other is seen as a plus. Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd split a couple of endorsements this week (the first union endorsement for either candidate, thus far).
Mr. Dodd officially receives the endorsement of the International Association of Fire Fighters, a 280,000 member group, today.

Not to be outdone, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, announced the endorsement of the United Transportation Union, which represents 125,000 current and former transportation workers.
No endorsement from the IAFF for Rudy Giuliani? Weird...
