OH-SEN: Police endorse Portman. Firefighters back Strickland [View all]

Former Ohio Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland said he still has strong union support even after two major unions in his state backed his Senate race opponent.

The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police and the Ohio Conference of Teamsters this week both backed Strickland's Republican rival, incumbent Sen. Rob Portman.

The two unions that just endorsed Portman had previously backed Strickland in both his successful run for governor in 2006 and his unsuccessful bid for re-election four years later.

But Strickland announced the backing of the Ohio Association of Professional Firefighters this week as well, and his campaign has said he also has the support of labor organizations like the AFL-CIO, AFSCME and the United Auto Workers.
