United Steelworkers Local 2660 rallied their support behind Rick Nolan.
The steelworkers said they put their full support behind Congressman Nolan for his work in Washington D.C. in helping the mining industry.
They said Nolan has worked tirelessly for them to get many laidoff miners back to work.
"This is not a game. This is about feeding our families and building a life we can be proud of and we want a representative who sticks up for us and tells the truth," said Cliff Tobey, USW Local 2660 president.
