UAW Backs Page for Lt. Gov.

"Kinder abandoned the office to run for Governor . . .
. . . His party had other plans."

The United Auto Workers (UAW) have endorsed Rep. Sam Page for Missouri's Lieutenant Governor.

Glenn Kage, Financial Secretary for UAW Local 136, called Page "... a true friend of the people who works to expand health care coverage for working families in the State of Missouri. He avoids partisan bickering and is respected on both sides of the aisle, but when needed, Page fights for what he believes in, like affordable health care."

In his release, Page said the UAW has a track record "of endorsing few candidates, but working relentlessly for those that they endorse."

The release from Page also includes this curious statement:

Page seeks the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor. The office is currently held by Peter Kinder, Republican. Kinder abandoned the office to run for governor when Blunt announced he was not seeking reelection. His party leadership told Kinder they had other plans for the office. Kinder is again running for re-election.
