Del. DeJuliis supports Brewster for Congress

Del. Connie Galiazzo DeJuliis has endorsed Del. Gerry L. Brewster for Maryland's 2nd Congressional District.

"My campaign is not over until we elect a Democrat on Nov. 8. We must elect real people with the values of honesty, decency and who possess a hard work ethic," Ms. DeJuliis said.

Mr. Brewster recently received a unanimous vote from members of the Metropolitan Baltimore Council of the AFL-CIO. For the union to endorse, a candidate must receive at least 66 percent of the vote.

President Ernest Grecco said the organization is backing Mr. Brewster because of his positions on several issues, including OSHA, health care and the striker replacement bill.
