Teachers Union Endorses Hillary
by Jeff Dinelli
Senator Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of another major union today, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), further solidifying her lead in union endorsements among presidential candidates.
The AFT, an affiliated international union of the AFL/CIO, has more than 3,000 local affiliates nationwide and more than 1.4 million members. This reflects Clinton's unparalleled history of working for and supporting educational causes, and the NEA will surely follow the AFT's action.
