A union leader is the Democrats pick to run for the state Senate in District Seven.
Brad Thompson serves as president of Tate and Lyle’s International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 1070.
He also was president of the Federation of Grain Millers local union 702 at Cargill.
Now, the Delphi resident is looking to take on another role, state senator in the 7th District.
He says will use those experiences leading unions as a building block of his campaign.
