To move In a surprise, Nevada’s powerful Culinary Union Local 226, decided on Thursday not a recommendation for a candidate in the Democratic presidential primary – say, instead, that it was with a focus on raising awareness of the problems, the concerns of its members.

“We support our goals,” Geoconda Argüello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union Local 226, said during a press conference in Las Vegas. “We respect every single candidate now. We know all the candidates and we respect them all.”

The Nevada group meetings are usually decided by who wins the state of the two main centers of Clark County, home of Las Vegas and the Culinary Union, and Washoe County, where Reno is located. The state has assumed an even greater role in this year’s election, at the time of the unhappy contest in the Iowa Caucasus and the results of this week’s primary in New Hampshire.
