Today in Waterbury, the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut (UPFFA) announced their endorsement of Chris Murphy for Senate. The UPFFA represent 4,000 firefighters in throughout the state and becomes the fourth labor organization to endorse Murphy's candidacy.

Press release:

"Connecticut Fire Fighters are on the front lines protecting our families every day", Murphy said. "To have their endorsement so early in this campaign is a huge honor and will provide critical support in our fight for the future of middle class working families throughout Connecticut."

According to Pete Carozza, Jr., UPFFA of Connecticut President, the decision to endorse Rep. Murphy was an easy one.

"Chris has been there every time working men and women needed someone to stand up and fight for them", Carozza said. "We are proud to stand with him in his efforts to become the next Senator from Connecticut and we will be working hard to take his grassroots message to people all over the state."


Murphy added, "This endorsement is not only significant because of the type of people Connecticut Fire Fighters are, but also because that no one knows the needs and concerns of our neighborhoods better."

From today, here's video of the endorsement presser.
