Good News!

It happens so rarely, y'know?

Well, Christine netted the endorsement of the International Association of Machinists (IAM) who represent most of the airline workers at O'Hare and have lots of ties within the 6th district.

My favorite tag line:
"We’re tired of middle-of-the-road, get-along, compromise kind of political decision-making in Washington.” He continued, “We need people who understand what’s happening to working families, and who have the courage and the ideas to change that. Christine is one of those people, and we’ll do everything we can to get her elected."
Yup. No thanks to Rahm, Christine continues to earn the respect of progressives everywhere. More democratic activists lay it on the line for Christine--she won the endorsement of Democracy For America, the national arm of the Dean campaign, Dean For America.

"Howard Dean’s support was extremely helpful two years ago because it gave credibility to a bona fide grassroots campaign that was mobilizing and energizing Democrats who were being under-served and under-represented by the leaders of their own party,” said Cegelis. “This time, the Democratic leadership is still going in another direction, which gives additional value and importance to the DFA endorsement. It’s the everyday Democratic voters and Independents in this District who will make the decision, not the party leadership, and DFA represents the values and the hopes of those voters, just as I do. ”

But that's not all! She also garnered the endorsements of the Mexican-American Political Coalition and the Italian-American Political Coalition.

Way to go Christine.
