Dean Likely To Get SEIU Nod
The Dean juggernaut just keeps rolling on.
“Howard Dean is about to take another huge step toward winning the Democratic nomination,” Ryan Lizza writes in the New Republic (link to come tomorrow). “According to union officials and aides to several campaigns, it is nearly certain that the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) will endorse Dean next week. This may sound like just another obscure piece of campaign inside baseball, but the endorsement could transform the race.”
Editor’s Note: I have now heard this same intelligence from several informed Political Wire readers in the last 24 hours. The endorsement is expected on November 6th. Rep. Dick Gephardt’s campaign is working frantically to get the union to delay the decision.
