I guess that LIFL interview story was true

Remember this?

TWO different people have told me the same story about Caesar Trunzo's interview with the LI Federation of Labor and it's a doozy. They say that Trunzo told them that he was "pretty sure that Hillary Clinton was going to beat Barack Obama" and that he was sure that Joe Bruno would be able to hold on to his majority in the senate. WHAT THE HELL?

I bring it up because TAP says that the UAW just endorsed Brian Foley.

SD-3: UAW Backs Foley

Brookhaven Supervisor Brian X. Foley today received the endorsement of UAW (United Auto Workers). The endorsement reflects Brian X. Foley's deep commitment to fight for the working families of Islip and Brookhaven.

"Out of control property taxes are literally driving people off of Long Island. This district has stagnated after 36 years of Republican control. It's time for change and the UAW thinks Brian Foley can bring about that change," stated Robert Madore, Director of UAW Region 9A.

"People are sick of the high property taxes and the skyrocketing price of food and gas. Special interests have Albany in gridlock; preventing the change we need. The working families of Islip and Brookhaven have had enough! We want change from the White House to the State House," stated Foley. "I am thrilled to have UAW's support. Together we must move forward to bring the change and results our communities need," added Foley

UAW's endorsement adds to Foley's already formidable organization that collected over 3,200 signatures to qualify for the Democratic line and is well positioned to defeat the weakened 36 year Conservative Republican incumbent Caesar Trunzo.

That's a pretty big deal
