2018 U.S. Congressional Races
United States Senator Chris Murphy
"I 'm so proud to receive the support of teachers across the state. As a father of two young boys, I know how much teachers make a difference in our kids' lives. Unfortunately, the Trump administration is doing a lot in Washington to make the lives of Connecticut teachers harder. I've stood with local educators to oppose arming teachers in classrooms. As a member of the Senate Education Committee, I've fought against drastic education funding cuts and efforts to weaken union protections. There is a lot of work to do, and I'm glad to know that CEA and teachers across Connecticut are by my side."

Hear What Some Teachers Are Saying
"Chris Murphy has proven time and time again that he values education and stands with teachers and students. From leading an attempt to make Congress responsive to the need to keep us safe in classrooms, he led a filibuster to promote gun control. He voted no in an attempt to protect us from the devastating and unresponsive policies of DeVos, and he continues to fight against the misuse of public education dollars for corporate profit. With a strong record of fighting for legislation that supports teachers and public education, Senator Murphy deserves the education community's support on Election Day."
