| 2 Comments

The American Federation of Teachers was one of the first unions to endorse Sen. Hillary Rodman Clinton (D-N.Y.) The Chicago native returned home on Saturday to attend a wedding and to address the group, where she plugged presumptive nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and paid her props to an influential union that was for her and worked in at least 14 states to get her the nomination. Obama will be endorsed by the union on Sunday and talks to the AFT via a remote hook-up from San Diego.

Mayor Daley, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) also spoke. Gov. Blagojevich was invited, did not accept.
