Chu gets labor support

Two of the most powerful unions in Southern California, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and Service Employees International Union, have endorsed state Board of Equalization chairwoman Judy Chu to succeed Rep. Hilda Solis in Congress, assuming Solis is confirmed as President Obama's secretary of labor.

The endorsements give Chu an early advantage over state Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-East Los Angeles, who also plans to run for the seat.
