(Harrisburg) -- State Treasurer Rob McCord has the endorsement of another big Pennsylvania labor union.

McCord won the endorsement from Pennsylvania's largest teachers' union, the Pennsylvania State Education Association. He also is endorsed by United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776, the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters and the largest state employees union, AFSCME Council 13.

Some unions haven't endorsed yet, including the AFL-CIO labor federation.

Unions are typically an important source of money and volunteerism in campaigns, particularly for Democrats.

McCord is vying for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Governor Corbett in the November 4 election.

The primary election is May 20 and six others, including U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and York businessman Tom Wolf, plan to seek the Democrats' nomination.
