New Hampshire’s largest teachers union is backing Democrat Hillary Clinton for president.

The state chapter of the National Education Association announced its endorsement of the former Secretary of State this morning.

NEA-NH President Scott McGilvray calls Clinton a "tireless fighter for both students and educators."

The endorsement comes with the support of the union’s more than 16,000 members in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

While the state chapter is weighing in, the National Education Association has yet to formally announce its pick for president.

The American Federation of Teachers announced its support of Clinton in July.
