NEA Endorses Hillary Clinton in Democratic Primary

It’s official: The National Education Association is putting its muscle, money, and legions of teacher volunteers behind Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The endorsement comes despite serious misgivings from some of its affiliates, who were hoping for Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, or at least a slower endorsement process that would give the union more time to extract policy promises from Clinton. (Plus, there’s always the chance that Vice President Joe Biden, who has long had a great relationship with the union, may jump in.)
