STATE'S LARGEST PUBLIC EMPLOYEES UNION ENDORSES YEAKEL, PREATE, BAKER KNOLL AND LEWIS

 STATE'S LARGEST PUBLIC EMPLOYEES UNION ENDORSES
 YEAKEL, PREATE, BAKER KNOLL AND LEWIS
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The state's largest public employees union, AFSCME, which has more than 72,000 members statewide, today made the following endorsements for elections in this year's general elections: Lynn Yeakel for U.S. senator; Ernie Preate Jr., state attorney general; Catherine Baker Knoll, state treasurer; and H. Craig Lewis, state auditor general.
 AFSCME's state leader Edward J. Keller said Yeakel earned AFSCME's endorsement because "her courage and conviction will help lead our country in a new direction that will provide real opportunity and fairness for working men and women. A Clinton-Yeakel victory will inspire the change that is sorely needed after 12 years of the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George Bush. The election of Lynn Yeakel also would more clearly define Pennsylvania's national agenda because her election would have two Democrats serving simultaneously in the U.S. Senate, something which has never happened in the history of our commonwealth and nation."
 Keller said AFSCME endorsed Preate for re-election as state attorney general and Baker Knoll for re-election as state treasurer "because they did a good job during their first terms in their respective offices."
 AFSCME completed its statewide endorsements by throwing its support behind state Sen. H. Craig Lewis for election as state auditor general.
