WEA President: Kerry is Right Man

Laramie, Wy – The National Education Association is endorsing Democrat John Kerry in the presidential election. The president of the Wyoming Education Association, Gary McDowell, says this is because President Bush is not willing to change the No Child Left Behind Act while Kerry says he is willing to work with the recommendations of the National Education Association.
McDowell says they do look at every individual candidate before endorsing one. He says while they haven't endorsed a Republican for president they have supported members of the G-O-P on the state level.
