As teachers, education support professionals, and citizens, you can make a strong statement for public education by supporting
friends of education.
  

NSEA-Endorsed Candidates Excel in June Primary Election

Anchored by a runaway win by long-time ally Ruben Kihuen, NSEA-endorsed candidates overwhelmingly dominated their primary races. In addition to Kihuen, 11 of 12 endorsed candidates for state legislative offices with contested primaries won their elections.

NSEA is proud of our pro-public education slate moving on to November and congratulates: Senator Kelvin Atkinson, Senator Joyce Woodhouse, Senator David Parks, John Piro, William McCurdy, Chris Brooks, Assemblymember Elliot Anderson, Assemblymember Richard Carrillo, Assemblymember Ellen Spiegel, Ozzie Fumo, and Sandra Jauregui.

NSEA ran an aggressive member communications program in this cycle that included direct mail, phones, social media, and volunteer recruitment. NSEA sent 4 mailers on behalf of Ruben Kihuen and supplemented those with phones and social media. In many of the legislative contests, NSEA members in the districts were more than the difference in the race.

Meanwhile, both candidates carrying NSEA’s endorsement for their State Board of Education primary elections won their primaries. NSEA will work to help Tim Hughes and Felicia Ortiz win their November races.

"NSEA is excited that so many public education champions won their primary elections. We will work hard to make sure these candidates are elected in November, so we can return our focus to improving public education for every Nevada student," said NSEA President Ruben Murillo, Jr. 

NSEA 2016 Candidate Endorsements

Wealthy and powerful special interests in this country want to dismantle public education, and the state of Nevada is a major battleground. NSEA will lead the fight to protect and improve public education.

Our endorsed candidates have all committed to fight for public education. Many of these candidates have stood with us through many battles. Now is our time to stand with them.
