    USW endorses Democrat Baron Hill for U.S. Senate

    GARY — The United Steelworkers union, representing 23,000 members in Indiana, on Monday endorsed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Baron Hill in his race against Republican Todd Young at a rally at Local 1066 headquarters.

    Mike Millsap, USW District 7 director, spoke at the rally, saying he believes Hill will bring change to Indiana for the benefit of the middle class and children.

    “Baron Hill understands that if we are going to have a middle class then we need good-paying manufacturing jobs,” Millsap said. “Hoosier children’s education is our priority. Baron Hill understands that, and wants to make Indiana education second to none.”
