Once coveted endorsements from police unions become more problematic for candidates in new era of skepticism toward cops

Endorsements from the Fraternal Order of Police and the Police Benevolent Association have long been coveted by politicians. After all, what could be a better way for a candidate to show support for first responders and law & order than recommendations from police groups? The answer isn’t as clear in 2020 as it once was. Instead of serving as a badge of honor, recommendations from the FOP and PBA could, for some voters, amount to a scarlet letter.
