Obama wins Teamsters and Boilermakers' endorsements

Barack Obama received the endorsement of the Teamsters Union and the 65,000-member International Brotherhood of Boilermakers today.

The Teamsters have 80,000 members in Pennsylvania, 60,000 in Ohio and 17,000 in Texas.

Obama now has four endorsements from the Change to Win labor federation making him eligible for a national endorsement by the group. The federation plans to meet Thursday to talk about a possible endorsement.
