Hillary Clinton Addresses the National Education Association
July 5, 2016--Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received a warm welcome at the National Education Association's 95th Representative Assembly at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.  "I want to say right from the outset that I'm with you," Clinton told the 7,500 or more delegates.  "I can't be too presumptuous, but if I am fortunate enough to be elected president, educators will have a partner in the White House, and you'll always have a seat at the table."  [transcript]
According to the NEA, the Representative Assembly is the world's largest democratic deliberative body.  During the speech it may have been one of the loudest, as delegates made ample use of the thundersticks.
Clinton and NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia.  NEA, which is the largest labor union in the United States, endorsed Clinton in the Democratic primaries on Oct. 3, 2015 (+).
Next stop for Clinton is a ride on Air Force One with President Obama to Charlotte, NC for her first joint appearance of the campaign with him.
Campaigning for officers.
