Culinary Union Decides Not to Back a Dem Candidate

The Culinary Union, the most influential union in Nevada politics, has decided to stay out of the state’s Democratic presidential caucuses, denying candidates who aggressively courted the group from getting a major leg up in the upcoming contest. The Culinary Union, a 60,000-member group made up of housekeepers, porters, bartenders and more said Thursday that it will instead use its organizing power to get out the vote for the caucuses.
