The California Federation of Teachers has announced its support for Stockton Democrat Cathleen Galgiani for the open 5th State Senate District seat that includes Lodi and Galt.
The union consists of 135 local labor unions chartered by the American Federation of Teachers and represents more than 120,000 educational employees.
Galgiani is running against Republicans Leroy Ornellas of Tracy and Bill Berryhill of Stockton in the June 5 primary. The two top vote-getters will square off in the November general election.
