Miller endorsed by Labor

As a former member of the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers), I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, as the Democratic candidate for Iowa Secretary of State in the June 7th Iowa primary election.  Thank you for your support!  Joel Miller

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, Makes 2022 Political Endorsements | APRIL 25, 2022

Des Moines IA: The Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO held its Committee on Political Education (C.O.P.E) Convention, April 23, in Des Moines, Iowa this past weekend.  This is the formal step in the process to evaluate candidates for the first round of endorsements for the 2022 election cycle.

“The Iowa Federation of Labor endorsement process is very democratic. Local labor councils evaluate and recommend endorsements to the state organization, where they must get two-thirds support to get an endorsement,” said Charlie Wishman, President of the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. “We consider all candidates who go through our endorsement process, and they are vetted as well by those in local AFL-CIO chapters.  The Iowa Federation of Labor is looking for candidates, regardless of party, who are committed to advancing policies that are in the best interests of all working people and who want to reverse the anti-worker course that this state has been on for some time. We have endorsed both Republicans and Democrats this cycle, and stand with those who stand with us.”

Additional endorsements may be made as candidate questionnaires are completed and returned.  IFL Secretary-Treasurer Pete Hird noted, “Some candidates do not engage in our endorsement process for one reason or another, which effectively eliminates them from endorsement opportunities with our organization.  Our program requires candidates to tell us where they stand on issues important to working Iowans before we will support them as well as to learn about the issues that are important to and matter to organized labor.”

Governor: Diedre DeJear
Secretary of State: Joel Miller
Auditor of State: Rob Sand
Treasurer of State: Mike Fitzgerald
Secretary of Agriculture: John Norwoood
