International Association of Fire Fighters General President Harold Schaitberger knew his union’s quick endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 White House run was going to be roundly criticized by some.
“I am forced to reinforce this. We are a very politically diverse union. We have Republicans, conservatives, progressives, independents and in that way we are kind of a perfect reflection of the landscape in the country,” Schaitberger said. “Whatever political decisions we have made past or present there will be a section of our membership that will not agree with that decision. We celebrate that, I understand that.”
