The Cleveland police union Tuesday endorsed state Treasurer Josh Mandel – a Republican -- in his bid for U.S. Senate.  

The union hall was devoid of any members when its president, Steve Loomis, announced the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association leadership had voted to endorse Mandel over incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown.  Loomis said Brown is “stale” and does not support law enforcement.

Trump endorsement protesters

African-American officers in Cleveland are calling on union leaders to withdraw their endorsement of Republican Donald Trump. The officers say the union’s support for Trump is divisive and doesn’t represent its members.

Black Shield President Lynn Hampton says the union’s support for Trump, who has described inner cities as more dangerous than war zones, harms relations with African American neighborhoods.
