(Associated Press) Hillary Rodham Clinton has won the endorsement of the American Federation of Teachers. It's the first major labor union to make an endorsement in the 2016 presidential campaign.
The president of the union, Randi Weingarten, says in a statement Saturday that Clinton is the "champion working families need in the White House."

The endorsement has been widely expected. The teachers' union supported Clinton's primary campaign in 2008, and Weingarten is a longtime Clinton ally.
