Clinton wins endorsement from U.S. ironworkers' union

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Clinton speaks at a campaign stop in IowaDemocrat Hillary Clinton on Monday won the endorsement of the ironworkers’ union, adding to her front-runner status in the race for her party’s U.S. presidential nomination. “While the council felt that several other candidates align with ironworker values, none compare to Secretary Clinton when it comes to putting those beliefs into practice,” the union said in a statement. “Clinton’s record of looking out for the jobs that union members rely on was the largest factor in the council’s decision.” Clinton is working to build a broad coalition within her party now in a bid to avoid a damaging primary fight and enter the general election in November 2016 with a strong base of support.
