Teachers back Reichert

Posted by David Postman

Congressman Dave Reichert has won important endorsements from the national and state teachers' unions. The usually-Democratic leaning National Education Association and Washington Education Association announced yesterday that they are backing the two-term Republican's re-election.

The NEA gave Reichert an "A" on their Congressional report card. Washington's Democratic delegation all got "A"s as well. But the other two Republicans fared poorly. Rep. Doc Hastings got an "F" and Cathy McMorris Rodgers got a "D".

The NEA has found very few Republicans to back this year. According to opensecrets.org, the union has donated $749,150 to federal candidates this year. Democrats got 91 percent of that.
