While Hillary Clinton was out on the campaign trail blasting the NRA, the NEA finalized its endorsement of the former secretary of state. This is even bigger news than her Wendy Davis endorsement, as the National Education Association is America’s largest labor union and was reportedly tempted by socialist Bernie Sanders.

Interesting choice to use a 14-year-old photo of Senator Hillary Clinton. The smile is almost lifelike.

Clinton might be feeling the love from NEA leadership, but word among the NEA rank and file is that most still #FeelTheBern, and others would have liked to have seen at least one debate among the candidates before making an endorsement.

NEA president Lily Eskelsen García is thrilled to share the news with the union’s members.

.@Lily_NEA told me in reaching its decision, 75 percent of the NEA board supported Clinton.

@Lily_NEA please consider your members and give Bernie Sanders the due consideration to lead this union and our nation to be great again

@Lily_NEA you did it again, so disappointed in the Hillary decision. So much for representing the members.

She could be indicted by the primaries, but we don’t suppose that matters to the NEA leadership.
