San Diego — Today, the Scott Peters for Congress campaign highlighted the broad support from students and teachers for Rep. Peters’ re-election.
Rep. Peters has been endorsed by the California Federation of Teachers, the College Democrats at UC San Diego, the College Democrats at San Diego State University, California Young Democrats, and the San Diego County Young Democrats.
“In San Diego we know that a top-notch education feeds a robust and high-skilled job market. The 52nd Congressional district is the 10th best educated district in the country, and college graduates can pursue careers in biotech, engineering, health care research and beyond. I am proud to receive these endorsements because empowering teachers and students spurs San Diego’s innovation,” said Rep. Peters.
As an advocate for higher education opportunities, Rep. Peters has reached across party lines to find solutions to address the rising cost of college tuition, including introducing a bipartisan bill that encourages employer participation in loan repayment that has the support of 50 Republicans and 77 other Democrats. He also wrote and passed legislation to extend full GI education and retraining benefits to Purple Heart recipients. Read more about Rep. Peters’ education priorities here.
