Teachers' union, Semler endorse Dorn...

Not a lot of suspense on this one, but the Washington Education Association has endorsed Randy Dorn, a (different) union official running to oust state Superintendent of Public Instruction Terry Bergeson.

The WEA is at odds with Bergeson, it's former president, over her support for the controversial Washington Assessment of Student Learning tests and what the union sees as an ongoing lack of school funding.

Dorn is also endorsed by the union he heads, the Public School Employees of Washington, which represents bus drivers, food workers, custodians, tutors and other working in schools.

Also today, Richland School Superintendent Rich Semler, a popular candidate who dropped out of the race recently over family health issues, endorsed Dorn.
