Governor’s Race: McCord Picks Up Teachers’ Endorsement

One of state’s largest unions makes its choice.

PoliticsPA reports: “Pennsylvania’s largest teacher’s union – and one of the state’s most prominent unions overall – threw its support behind State Treasurer Rob McCord. The Pennsylvania State Education Association, an affiliate of the National Education Association, represents nearly 180,000 current and former teachers. It has the largest Pa. membership of any labor union to endorse in the primary thus far. Only the statewide AFL-CIO and SEIU are larger.” PoliticsPA calls the endorsement a “major development.”
