Statewide General Election 2022 - National Midterms

The CFT makes endorsements in every election after soliciting  a candidate’s positions on issues important to educators, carefully reviewing voting records and conducting extensive interviews through our Committee on Political Education. The CFT also analyzes ballot measures on each statewide ballot before making a recommendation.
