SEIU endorses Markey over Lynch

The state chapter of the Service Employees International Union this morning formally backed US Representative Edward J. Markey for Senate over US Representative Stephen F. Lynch, an expected nod that gives Markey access to the labor group’s formidable get-out-the-vote operation.

SEIU said Markey’s stances on immigration, health care, and budget policies helped him secure the support of the union, whose membership includes hospital workers, homecare providers, janitors, security guards, and social workers.
