SEIU For Davis



Not official yet but the Service Employees International Union this week will  endorse Jim Davis for governor. "He’s hands down the better candidate on our issues," Van Church, SEIU's Florida political coordinator, said Monday afternoon. "The governor's mansion wouldn't be for sale under a Davis administration."

It is the second major union endorsement for Davis in the past few days (he got the Teamsters on Saturday) though the support is little surprise for a Democrat. SEIU has about 60,000 members in Florida.
