 “I am a proud union member and honored by the support of my brothers and sisters in the labor movement,” Ward said, “Now more than ever, we need to be fighting for the working people of this country.”  

Dan Ward also received yesterday the endorsement of With Honor, whose mission is to support “principled next-generation veterans to office who will work in a cross-partisan way to create a more effective and less polarized government.”
