Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton's campaign launched a group to reach out to educators in the race for governor. It's called Educators for Dalton.
Former NCAE President Sheri Strickland is its chairwoman, and founders include the current NCAE president and vice president.
Former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory is the Republican candidate.
“Walter Dalton created the state's early college system, led efforts to decrease classroom sizes, and worked to give teachers the largest pay raise in a generation,” Strickland said in a statement. “Walter has stood up for our children and teachers, and it’s time we stand up for him.”
Correction: Dalton's campaign started the group.
