The duty and goal of endorsements from the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters is to help elect those to office who share their commitment and values of helping working families of Pennsylvania. The Conference must endorse and support people who will work to fight for our members' best interest, regardless of party preference.

The Conference targets particular candidates and carefully utilizes resources to ensure that we have a representative in Congress who supports what our members and the working people of Pennsylvania need most. The Conference no longer finds that Bryan Lentz would be the best representative for its members in the 7th Congressional district.

The Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters represents 92,000 members in the public and private sectors throughout the commonwealth.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents more than 1.4 million hardworking men and women in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
