WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a
statement from James A. Williams, General President of the International
Union of Painters and Allied Trades, on the results of the Iowa Caucus:
"Although Senator Clinton did not prevail in Iowa, it's clear by the
votes she received that her pledge to fight for working families resonated
loudly. The men and women of the IUPAT stand by the senator and vow to make
certain working families everywhere know that a vote for Senator Clinton is
a vote for a better future. We look forward to being a part of the winning
difference in the upcoming contests throughout the country. Senator
Clinton, we're already working for you in New Hampshire. See you there."
The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) endorsed
Senator Clinton in December after holding an unprecedented nationwide vote
among its members and retirees.
The union represents over 160,000 working and retired men and women of
the finishing trades in the United States (http://www.IUPAT.org). The IUPAT
is renowned for its political activism within the organized labor movement
and has been dubbed the 'Army of Black and Gold' because of its members'
signature black and gold t-shirts and large numbers at rallies.
