Susannah Randolph won an endorsement from the Service Employees International Union on Wednesday in her run for the 9th Congressional District.
The union said Randolph was “a true champion,” who stood up for a variety of views they find admirable.
“She has fought on the frontline alongside her neighbors, standing up for working people in the battles for women’s rights, environmental justice, a real living wage, health care for all, protecting our seniors and strengthening the middle class,” said SEIU Florida President Monica Russo. “A mother herself, Susannah believes we need to invest in our children and is dedicated to providing quality education and childcare to every child in America. As a seasoned community organizer and a true civic partner, she has already helped transform her diverse Central Florida community. The members of SEIU Florida are honored to endorse Susannah Randolph for Congress.”
Randolph said SEIU is “a powerful voice” for working families everywhere.
“I look forward to continuing to work closely with SEIU to improve the lives of hard-working families by raising wages, securing better benefits, and protecting their right to unionize,” she said.
In the race for the 9th Congressional District, Randolph faces off against incumbent Darren Soto, Democrats Valeri Crabtree and Dena Grayson, and Republicans Wanda Rentas and Wayne Leibnitsky.
