The National Education Association’s political action committee has endorsed Democratic nominee Dave Domina in Nebraska’s Senate race.

Domina has demonstrated his commitment to children and public education, the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education said Tuesday in expressing its support for him.

NEA represents 3 million elementary and secondary teachers and other educators. Its Nebraska affiliate, the Nebraska State Education Association, has 28,000 members.

NSEA also expressed its support for Domina.

Domina said he is “keenly aware that the endorsement selects my candidacy over the candidacy of a person who serves as president of a small university that includes teacher education in its curriculum.”

Republican Senate nominee Ben Sasse is president of Midland University in Fremont.

Domina said No Child Left Behind, the federal education reform program, has “failed to substantially reform America’s schools and has left the schools reeling with an unhealthy teach-to-the-test practice and policy.”
