Krasner was asked whether the endorsement would be a precursor to one from FOP Lodge 5, which backed Rich Negrin in the primary.

“Regardless of what endorsements come or do not come, I intend to stand for fairness and equal treatment for everyone including good police officers,” he said. “So that is not a primary concern of mine.”
