Espaillat gains more support in Congress run

Laundry and Distribution workers say Espaillat works hard and is dedicated to the borough. (4/22/14)

THE BRONX - One candidate for Congress is getting more support from the Bronx.

Yesterday, the Laundry and Distribution workers affiliate of the Workers United Service Employees International Union (SEIU) publicly endorsed Andriano Espaillat for the 13th Congressional District.

The announcement comes a week after Bronx County Democrats threw their support behind Espaillat -- not veteran Congressman Charles Rangel.

Supporters at the event say Espaillat works hard and is dedicated to the borough.

New York State's Congressional primary is June 24.
