U.S. Senator Mark Begich has already received an endorsement for his 2014 reelection bid.
The Alaska AFL-CIO endorsed the Democrat this week, more than a year and a half before voters go to the polls.
“Senator Begich has shown time and time again that he cares about Alaska’s workforce. He values hard work and wants to make sure that good jobs come to Alaska, and stay in Alaska,” said Alaska AFL-CIO president Vince Beltrami in a statement.
The AFL-CIO represents more than 50,000 workers in the state.
