SEIU Endorses Donnelly, Zweifel

PLUS: Early Betting on DEM A.G. Primary **Below**
The Missouri State Council of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has endorsed State Rep. Margaret Donnelly for Attorney General and Rep. Clint Zweifel for State Treasurer.

The union represents 14,000 workers in healthcare, building services and the public sector.

"I am honored by the endorsement, and I am grateful for the confidence shown in me by a group of such hard working Missourians," said Donnelly. "Together we are committed to ensuring that the Attorney General's Office is a strong defender of Missouri's families, and together we will make history when I am elected Missouri's first woman Attorney General."

In her release, Donnelly brands herself as "the only candidate running for Attorney General who is a former union member."

BTW . . . Buzz from Greene County law enforcement on who wins the Dem A.G. primary . . . "Donnelly," said one, who hobnobs with other law enforcement figures from around the state. "The feeling is that Koster and Harris bloody each other up, divide up the western portion of the state, and Donnelly wins," he said.
