Updated: February 14, 2020 09:08 PM

Standing at Lake Superior Warehousing, Congressman Pete Stauber accepted the endorsement of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 49.


"I'm proud to have this endorsement, and will carry it through the election and beyond," Stauber shared.

Union leaders said they are proud to endorse people on both sides of the aisle.

“Pete has been a champion for projects that will provide good paying union construction jobs. Line 3 replacement, Iron ore mining, logging, PolyMet, Twin Metals and transportation infrastructure funding are his priority and they are our priorities too,” said Jason George, Local 49 Business Manager. “These are the jobs that we need in this state, and there has been no one that has fought harder to bring them to the 8th district than Congressman Stauber. Local 49 is proud to be a union that works to build relationships on both sides of the political aisle. Job creation and the support of Davis-Bacon prevailing wage and opposition to Right to Work policies are our priorities. Congressman Stauber supports us on these items and has taken the votes to prove it. We look forward to helping return him to office in November.”
Stauber, in his first term in Congress, is attempting to become the first Republican to win re-election in Minnesota’s 8th congressional district since William Pittenger did in the 1940s.
