Not all Endorsements are Helpful

I suspect this may be one endorsement Mike Huckabee doesn’t want:

The 16,000-member New Hampshire affiliate of the National Education Association has chosen to recommend to its members Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary and Mike Huckabee in the Republican primary, according to a source within the state NEA.

This is the first time the state affiliate has picked a candidate in the GOP primary, and it follows Huckabee’s showing as the only Republican who spoke to the NEA convention in July.

It is very, very unusual for the NEA to endorse a Republican. Indeed, due to their opposition to teacher accountability and school choice, they have been outright hostile to Republicans, and vice versa. Huckabee’s conservative critics will certainly use this to bolster their charge that he is actually a closet liberal.
