In a not very literate way, teachers' union announced their endorsement of former Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., who is taking on Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., in a rematch of their 2010 race.  

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on the endorsement from the American Federation of Teachers' Wisconsin chapter, which contained an awkward mistake, followed by a simple mistake.

"Russ shares our commitment to high-quality pubic education from pre-kindgergarten through college and our serious concern about America's student loan debt crisis," read the statement from AFT-Wisconsin President Kim Kohlhass.  

The error still remains on the article . Feingold was also endorsed by the Wisconsin Education Association Council, according to the Journal Sentinel.
