HARTFORD, Conn. – One of the largest labor unions with 65,000 members threw their support behind Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s re-election bid Wednesday. Labor officials said none of the other gubernatorial candidates asked for the endorsement, except third-party candidate Jonathan Pelto.
Paul Filson, SEIU’s political director, said neither Tom Foley or Sen. John McKinney, the two Republican candidates vying for a chance to challenge Malloy, asked for a questionnaire.
Pelto, who was attacked by SEIU in May, said he requested a questionnaire, but was denied an opportunity to be interviewed by SEIU.
“They decided to go the way of the AFL-CIO and AFT-CT and prohibited me from having any contact with their members,” Pelto said Wednesday. Both unions snubbed Pelto and refused to let him participate in their endorsement process
