The San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council announced this afternoon that it won’t endorse a mayoral candidate, after all. The umbrella union organization had been leaning toward a Steve Francis endorsement.

“While no candidate garnered enough support to win the endorsement of the 120,000 working families that this Labor Council represents, it was clear that individual unions will want their voices heard in this very important election,” said Lorena Gonzalez, secretary-treasurer of the Labor Council. “We will use this opportunity to educate all of our members about the candidates, their positions and their individual union endorsements.”

So while Francis won’t get a boost from the labor council, the group could still finance mailers to its members touting other unions’ endorsements of him.
