The Nebraska State AFL-CIO has endorsed congressional candidate Brad Ashford.

The labor group represents 23,000 members from 115 local unions and statewide councils.

“Ashford has a proven record of working tirelessly to bring together diverse coalitions to fight for working families and will be a champion for hard-working Nebraskans,” said Sue Martin, the group’s president, in a press release.

Ashford, a Democrat, is a former congressman who is hoping to retake his old seat.

Nonprofit executive Kara Eastman is also running in the Democratic primary. The winner will face Republican incumbent Don Bacon.
