A major union is set to endorse Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s 2014 gubernatorial bid on Monday, according to The Washington Post.
Sources familiar with the Service Employees International Union’s decision, confirmed for the newspaper the endorsement ahead of the announcement scheduled for 3 p.m., Monday in Baltimore.
"The endorsement ensures the campaign will receive significant union support, including hundreds of SEIU member-volunteers who will knock on thousands of doors, make thousands of phone calls, and speak out within their communities," the union claims in a news release about the scheduled endorsement.
Brown’s campaign has been trotting out a string of endorsements in recent weeks.
The United Association of Journeyman and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry endorsed Brown.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Rep. Steny Hoyer, Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. Donna Edwards and State Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller Jr. have also endorsed Brown.
Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur are also running for the Democratic nomination for governor.
Mizeur has received endorsements from Baltimore City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke and "The Wire" actress Sonja Sohn.
Gansler officially kicked off his campaign last week that continues with stops on the Eastern Shore on Monday.
