Biden said in response, "I'm telling the Boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me me, OK, so the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them and went into great detail earlier to show their leadership exactly what I would do, number one."
According to John Hughes, leader of Boilermakers Local 154, Biden is not telling the truth.
In fact, not only has the union not endorsed Biden, but the Boilermakers Union has not endorsed any candidate for president.
"And I believe if you go onto our International [Boilermakers] website we have not endorsed a candidate this round, nor did the International Boilermakers endorse a candidate last time," Hughes explained.
Although the Boilermakers has not made a union-wide endorsement, the chapter invoked during the town hall, Boilermakers Local 154, has endorsed a candidate: President Donald Trump.
