    Default Clinton, Sanders, O’Malley hope to win labor support in Las Vegas

    This is a big deal IMO. I will be cheering Sanders on!
    Three contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination will be in Las Vegas this week to rally a longstanding voting bloc: the AFL-CIO.

    Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley will speak to a crowd of labor leaders representing 200,000 workers from 120 unions under the Nevada AFL-CIO umbrella on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Luxor.

    The Nevada AFL-CIO’s three-day convention will be a showcase for the candidates to unveil policy platforms and outline their plans for protecting labor unions, which have come under fire in recent years with state laws that attack collective bargaining and other pro-union safeguards.

    Clinton, the former secretary of state for President Barack Obama, and Sanders, Vermont’s Independent senator running for a spot on the Democratic ticket, will speak to Nevada workers and union officials on Tuesday. O’Malley, the former Maryland governor, will speak the following day. The AFL-CIO is closing the event to the media and will pass its list of goals and priorities for the upcoming year. Clinton and Sanders will follow up on their appearances by speaking to reporters Tuesday at town hall meetings in North Las Vegas. O’Malley will meet with media Wednesday at the Luxor.
    Clinton, Sanders, O

    Clinton IMO will not get the nomination even if every union was to endorse her.. The e-mail controversy is gonna be the last nail in her bid to run.. O'Malley?? He has lost all respect for apologizing for saying "all lives matter" to a bunch of thugs.. That leaves Sanders and I truly hope he gets it.. He seems to be the voice of the working people even though most people don't even know it..
