Elizabeth Warren on Facebook

The 110,000-member Massachusetts Teachers Association has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for Senate. The MTA, an affiliate of the National Education Association, made its endorsement within hours of the Massachusetts SEIU's endorsement of Warren. The MTA's endorsement is made through a committee that includes members of the union drawn from each of the state's congressional districts.

The endorsement statement focuses wholly on Warren, without discussion of Republican incumbent Scott Brown, and cites one of the less prominent aspects of Warren's biography:

While most people know that Warren is a law professor at Harvard University, [MTA President Paul] Toner said, few people know that before she went to law school she worked at a public elementary school in New Jersey teaching special needs students.
Warren's commitment to fighting for working families is well known, and her experience in both elementary and higher education gives her an unusually broad perspective on education issues, a clear appeal for an education union.

Union endorsements are great for Warren, but she still needs our help. Please, contribute $6 to Elizabeth Warren on Orange to Blue.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
