Nevada Culinary Workers Endorse Barack Obama
The Nevada Culinary Workers Union, with 60,000 members including the state's casino workers, endorsed Barack Obama late last night.
Nevada's primary is January 19. The Democratic turnout is expected to be 40,000. Here's some analysis from the Las Vegas Sun.
The SEIU in Nevada also endorsed Obama last night, but the implication isn't clear.
The chaotic selection process and deep division within the union's ranks will likely diminish the endorsement's weight. The decision came after a teleconference among 34 of the union's 44-member executive board Tuesday.
Update: Nevada Congresswoman Shirley Berkley endorsed Hillary today.
