September 17, 1976

Carter Endorsed by NEA

Jimmy Carter received an endorsement from the National Education Association in Washington D.C., the first time the NEA had endorsed a national ticket. Leaving Washington, Carter carried his campaign to Mississippi and Arkansas “to reestablish my southern credentials.” He continued to emphasize his eleven-point plan to combat inflation and balance the federal budget. Late that night, he returned home to Plains, Georgia.
