Labor for Bronson

Here's an unusual endorsement. The normally Democratic-leaning American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees has endorsed Republican Charles Bronson in his re-election bid for state agriculture commissioner. "Commissioner Bronson's support for his and all employees of the state of Florida has not gone unnoticed," union president Jeanette Wynn said. AFSCME is the second largest union in Florida, representing 110,000 employees.

Bronson is facing Democrat Eric Copeland of Coral Gables.
