Journal Gazette

Courtney Tritch's congressional campaign announced Tuesday that she has been endorsed by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations.

Tritch, a Democrat from Fort Wayne, is challenging first-term Rep. Jim Banks, a Republican from Columbia City, in the Nov. 6 general election in northeast Indiana's 3rd Congressional District.

"Courtney’s campaign is one of substance and equality," Brett Voorhies, president of the Indiana State AFL-CIO, said in a statement. "We know that she will be a champion for organized labor and everyday working people, and we look forward to collaborating with her when she’s in Congress."
