YOUR COBANC Political Action Endorsement Committee met and/or telephone interviewed 55 candidates this election season and is ready to name the women and men that we feel have our (COBANC and labor) best interests as part of their agenda. To best serve our COBANC family, political party was not a factor in our decision making. We even intentionally left out the party endorsements for each candidate because we voted on the person, not the party.

Please refer to the key below which will briefly indicate what we know or found out about each candidate so you have an idea why they received our endorsement.
