MANCHESTER, N.H., Nov. 3 /-USNewswire/ -- Teamsters Local 633 on Election Day will send an unprecedented number of its New Hampshire members to work on behalf of Democratic candidates for Congress, governor and president.

"We've never had a group like this," said Dave Laughton, secretary-treasurer of Teamsters Local 633 in Manchester. "They've been working long hours, seven days a week, to elect Barack Obama president and Democrats to Congress. They want this economy to get going again and they want to restore America's standing in the world."
