Nevada's Largest Teachers Union Is Endorsing Bernie Sanders

The Clark County Educational Association is backing Sanders in a state where organized labor still has big power in Democratic politics.

Excerpt:

Sen. Bernie Sanders won the endorsement of an influential teachers’ union in Nevada on Tuesday morning, a key sign of support in the early voting state where unions have significant political power.

The union represents 19,000 teachers and other educators in Las Vegas, and is the largest teachers’ union in Nevada. The Clark County School District is the fifth largest school district in the country.

Courtney said union members were impressed with what Sanders “was raising, his concerns and how he wanted to support and help educators, and not only the educators but the students themselves, to make sure education was open to all students across the board. It’s important to educators that everyone has access and that they get a good education.”

In a statement, Sanders thanked the union for its support and said he looked forward “to their partnership in transforming our country and defeating the most dangerous president in modern history."

"We’re proud to have teachers as our top donors by occupation because they hold the key to a more prosperous future for younger generations," he said. "Together, we will finally give teachers a much-deserved raise, reinvest in public education and create an education system that benefits students no matter their background or socioeconomic status.”
