Business, Labor Support Re-Electing Rep. Schomacker
Schomacker’s Work Together Approach Earns Him Uncommon Pair of Endorsements
Luverne – Two, oftentimes competing political interests, business and labor, have come together this election year in support of Rep. Joe Schomacker’s re-election. For labor, both the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 49 have endorsed Schomacker. He has also received the Minnesota Chamber Leadership Fund’s endorsement and was recently awarded with the National Federation of Independent Business’ “Guardian of Small Businesses” designation.
“I am proud to have the support of these four groups,” Schomacker said. “While I agree with no group all of the time, this exceptional collection of endorsements shows what can happen when our focus is getting the job done for the people of Minnesota.”
Schomacker credits these endorsements to his willingness to sit down and listen to what these groups have to say. “Common ground can often be found, if we’re willing to look for it,” the Southwestern Minnesota Representative said.
