Endorsements tell the story

I have heard some people say, “you are what you eat.”

Others have said, “you are who you hang out with.”

When it comes to politics would “you are who endorses you” work?

If so ponder this…

Here’s a few of the seven endorsements listed for Rich Murray, National Federation of Independent Business and the Chamber of Commerce (business groups) the National Rifle Association and the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (an anti-choice group).

Of the more than 20 endorsements for Shannon Savick the list includes United Food and Commerical Workers, the Minnesota AFL-CIO (unions) various women’s groups, electricians and ARC. You also have nurses, educators, laborers, cops and farmers groups.

Seems pretty clear to me.

Shannon Savick is endorsed by and will support hard working Minnesotans and the hard working Minnesota family.
