The President of the United Auto Workers Union says despite differences the organization may have had in the past with Evan Bayh, he’s encouraging his members to support the former U.S. Senator and Governor.

Dennis Williams toured Indiana today praising Bayh and criticizing Republican Todd Young saying he would have let the auto industry go bankrupt which would have harmed Hoosier workers.

Williams said despite Bayh’s support of a trade agreement with China that reportedly cost 2 million jobs, he has been with labor more than 90 percent of the time and would be a statesman if he was returned to office.

You can hear Williams’ comments in the Leon-Tailored Audio above, it runs about five minutes.

Williams also talks about the support Donald Trump is getting from many blue collar, rust belt workers.
