John Kerry Scoops Up Key Endorsements

John Kerry scooped up key union endorsements Friday as presidential rivals criticized his nearly 20-year Senate record, calling the Democratic front-runner all-talk, no-action on affirmative action and health care.


Polls showed the Massachusetts senator with a commanding lead in Missouri, Arizona and North Dakota � states with 143 of the 269 delegates at stake. Kerry shared the lead in two others, South Carolina and Oklahoma, and party strategists gave him the edge in New Mexico and Delaware.


In Washington, the Communications Workers of America, with 700,000 members, endorsed Kerry and Michigan’s largest teachers union, the 157,000-member Michigan Education Association, gave its support. A third union, the Sheet Metal Workers International Association, plans to announce its backing next week.

Two members of the Congressional Black Caucus also announced their endorsements Friday, with Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Pa., backing Edwards and Rep. Kendrick Meek, D-Fla., supporting Kerry.
