ISEA: Hatch ‘will best represent the students of Iowa’

The Iowa State Education Association’s PAC drove a dagger into Democrat Don Avenson’s 1990 gubernatorial campaign when it endorsed Republican Governor Terry Branstad’s bid for a third term.  Branstad hadn’t won the group’s backing before, and he hasn’t gotten it since. Today the ISEA announced it is backing Democrat Jack Hatch’s 2014 bid for governor. Read the announcement below:
