MONTGOMERY, AL - The Alabama AFL-CIO Wednesday announced it will endorse Commissioner Ron Sparks for governor.
The group chose Sparks over Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert Bentley.
"I couldn't be happier to have the endorsement of the Alabama AFL-CIO," Sparks said. "I have long been a supporter of working families in Alabama and it's nice to be recognized for the work I've done for working families. I will never turn my back on them. And I will fight to make sure that all working families in Alabama get the care and education they deserve."
