Carney has been endorsed by 26 labor unions. (press release on politicspa)

He has also been endorsed by Vote Against Violence (press release on politicspa), excerpt:

"I am extremely honored to receive the endorsement of Vote Against Violence," said Chris Carney. "As an EMT during college, I saw what domestic violence can do to women and to families. We need to make sure that our society understands the seriousness of domestic and sexual violence, and one way to do that is to make sure prosecutions move forward to make sure people who abuse are judged by a jury of their peers and, if found guilty, punished."

The campaign has released it's first television ads (link imbedded in press release)
