Popular Missouri Secretary of State Has Proven Record of Leadership KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa joined Teamsters from across Missouri today at a rally to announce the union's endorsement of Robin Carnahan for U.S. Senate. "Missourians deserve better leadership in Washington, and they'll get it from Robin Carnahan," Hoffa told hundreds of Teamsters at the rally held at Joint Council 56. "We can't afford business as usual in these tough economic times. The Teamsters will do what it takes to deliver a victory for Carnahan and the hardworking people of Missouri." Carnahan brings a proven record of serving and protecting Missourians as Secretary of State. Her work fighting investment fraud has earned her national recognition as a leader in securities law enforcement. As Missouri's senator, she will hold Wall Street and Washington accountable by cracking down on fraud, waste and abuse that has created the crisis plaguing the U.S. economy. "Robin Carnahan wants to create opportunities for people to improve their lives, and she will work tirelessly to make our government work by solving problems," said Jim Kabell, President of the Missouri-Kansas-Nebraska Conference of Teamsters. "She is a friend to Missouri's working families the Teamsters are proud to endorse her for U.S. Senate." Carnahan promoted consumer and investor education as a priority during her time as Secretary of State, developing an Investor Bill of Rights to help protect Missouri's citizens from fraud. She is the right leader for hardworking Missourians during this time of economic uncertainty. Carnahan's widespread popularity and her commitment to Missouri led to her re-election in November 2008, when she received more votes than any candidate in the state's history. 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.
