CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Union has voted overwhelmingly to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The vote was held Friday. Trump won the endorsement with 216 votes over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who garnered 68 votes.
The union doesn’t normally endorse a candidate, but a week ago, members voted in favor of making an endorsement by one vote. That led the way for Friday’s endorsement
According to a letter CPPA president Steve Loomis sent to all police union members Wednesday, “The Membership voted by a narrow margin that the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association WILL make an endorsement in the upcoming election for President of the United States.
A few weeks ago, the national Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Trump for president.
