ST. PAUL, Minnesota. Feb. 11, 2020 – Education Minnesota has endorsed Sen. Tina Smith’s campaign for reelection to the U.S. Senate in 2020.

"Education Minnesota is proud to endorse Tina Smith’s campaign for reelection to the U.S. Senate,” said Denise Specht, president of Education Minnesota. “Tina Smith is a committed protector of the rights of all workers to join unions and an advocate for expanding economic justice throughout our economy. She also stands against those powerful few who would use their influence to inflame division and distrust for their own gain. Educators support Tina because she knows how to bring people together and give them hope for a better future."

The political action committees of the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association have also endorsed Smith’s reelection campaign.
