ST. PAUL, Minnesota. Aug. 4, 2022 – Education Minnesota has endorsed Jen Schultz’s campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District in northeastern Minnesota.
Schultz is an educator and union member who teaches in Duluth.
Education Minnesota President Denise Specht said:
“Our union of educators is proud to endorse Jen Schultz for Congress because she has been a stalwart defender of the right of working people to come together in union and negotiate for the things families need to thrive – even at a time when corporate interests and their allies in Congress have been trying to crush unions all over America. Jen cares about people and her time in the state Legislature shows she has what it takes to fight and win on the issues Minnesotans care about, like great schools for every student, affordable healthcare and protecting our air, land and water so future generations can enjoy northern Minnesota’s great outdoors.”
A committee of local educators from Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District interviewed Schultz, a Democrat, during the endorsement process, which included approval from the political action committees of the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association.
