Republican presidential candidate John McCain gets a boost from President Bush in St. Paul, Minnesota on Thursday.
Bush gave his most extended public support for McCain so far at a gala party fundraiser in Washington on Wednesday night.
Democrat Barack Obama is picking up some laurels of his own.
Leaders of the AFL-CIO say he'll be getting the union's endorsement
in a matter of weeks. They held a private meeting with Obama
Wednesday at the union's headquarters a block from the White House.
A strong AFL-CIO endorsement could help Obama with blue-collar workers and union members in industrial states such as Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.
On Thursday, Obama plans an economic roundtable with labor leaders in Washington.
