Rep. Peña Labor Endorsement

Rep. Aaron Pena received word yesterday of his endorsement by the Texas State Employees Union. The news came after he addressed an audience composed of members of the Union at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg.

The endorsement from this organized labor group directly contradicts the accusations made by Pena's opponent regarding his efforts in Austin during the last legislative session. Despite efforts by the Eddie Saenz camp to distort Pena's record, those who have worked with Pena seem to be ignoring the smears. Whereas Saenz has sought endorsements from local political insiders, Pena seems to be garnering the favor of his community.
