Sanders marches with supporters in Nevada

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took to the streets of Las Vegas with supporters on Saturday (February 15) to march in support of immigrants.

Sanders was campaigning just a week before the Nevada caucuses.

Sanders, who bills himself as a champion of organized labor, has found himself in an escalating feud with Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union.

Tensions have been simmering for months between the powerful 60,000-member union and the 77-year-old U.S. senator, who comes to Nevada after a strong showing in Iowa and victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

The union, which criticized Sanders’ universal healthcare plan in a flyer to its members last week, said on Wednesday his supporters responded by “viciously” attacking the organization via Twitter, text, voicemails and direct messaging.

Sanders’ campaign responded with a statement defending his plan as guaranteeing comprehensive care.
