The Illinois Federation of Teachers is endorsing GOP Gubernatorial candidate and State Senator Kirk Dillard.
The group made up of more than 100,000 teachers and staff says that Dillard has been a an advocate for public schools and a strong voice against the, quote, ”unconstitutionality of recent pension theft legislation.”
A press release from the Federation encourages people to pull a republican ballot and vote for Dillard.
This is the third teacher backed endorsement for Dillard in the Primary.
In the past few weeks Dillard has received endorsements from the Illinois Education Association and the Illinois Retired Teachers Association.
