America’s largest labor union where President Biden spoke Friday has donated almost exclusively to Democrats, including the president, showering the party with a lopsided portion of its total political contributions, according to campaign finance data.
According to Open Secrets, the National Educators Association (NEA), which represents public school teachers and staff and advocates for the education of America’s children, has given more than 98% of its total political contributions for the current 2022 midterm elections cycle to Democratic congressional candidates, compared to less than 2% to Republicans.
The amounts given during the 2020 elections reflected a similar advantage towards Democratic congressional candidates, with nearly 95% of all the NEA’s contributions going to the party, and just 2.5% going to Republicans.
Each of the amounts was made up of contributions from individuals associated with the NEA, as well as its associated political action committee (PAC).
