Labor union endorsements usually aren't noteworthy, but the fact that a number of unions are backing Republican Craig Hall in House District 33 could be enough .
Hall, who is facing a tough re-election challenge from Democrat Liz Muniz, is pulling in endorsements
and donations from a number of labor unions including
- IBEW Local Union 57 - $500
- Utah AFL-CIO - $500
- Laborers' Political League - $250
- Operating Engineers Local No. 3 - $500
Hall also has a sizable cash advantage over Muniz. At the end of the latest reporting period, Hall tallied $31,380 on hand to Muniz's $1,288
. If you do the math, that's a 24-1 cash lead for Hall.
Because of those factors, we now believe Hall's chances of hanging on to this seat have improved considerably.
