Milwaukee teachers union passes on endorsing one of its members, instead endorses Christine Sinicki

Earlier today, incumbent Democratic State Rep. Christine Sinicki announced on Facebook her campaign had received the endorsement of both the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) and the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC).

While neither endorsement is surprising given Rep. Sinicki’s strong support for public educators and the public education system, the MTEA’s endorsement of Rep. Sinicki is notable given one of that group’s members just happens to be Rep. Sinicki’s opponent in the Democratic primary. The fact that the MTEA chose to endorse Christine Sinicki over one of its own members certainly can’t bode well for Julie Meyer’s hopes of unseating Rep. Sinicki, and I’d be shocked if any labor unions endorsed Meyer.
