NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia skyping for Hillary.
What has been rumored for several weeks is now pretty much a sure thing.
The NEA board of directors are meeting next week and they will go through the motions of taking a vote.
But an endorsement of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party primary race is all but assured.
NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia has been making calls and having skype meetings with state leaders from around the country in anticipation of next weeks meeting, sending the message that she wants a Hillary endorsement.
In her talks with state union leaders around the country she has admitted that Bernie Sanders and the NEA are more often in 100% agreement on education issues but that Hillary is more electable.
This has echoes of the early no-strings Obama endorsement in 2012, although that was eventually brought to the floor of the NEA RA for a delegate vote. Since this is a party primary endorsement, a RA vote is not required.
Polls released today show Hillary down double digits to Sanders in New Hampshire.
