The non-endorsement by the union is seen as a blow to former Vice President Joe Biden, who was hoping that a nod from the union could help jumpstart his flagging campaign following poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

February 12-Bernie Sanders has reached front-runner status in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination after a strong showing last week in the Iowa caucus and an outright win Tuesday in the New Hampshire primary.

The flier, obtained by CNN on Tuesday, outlines where the leading 2020 Democratic candidates stand on health care, immigration and "Good Jobs". According to the Nevada Independent, the union recently posted flyers inside employee areas of casinos and hotels warning that Sanders would end the Culinary's health care program if elected, through his Medicare for All proposal. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has also vocally supported his plan.

In another flier released last week, the Culinary union said, "We have fought for 85 years to protect our healthcare". Next to Warren's name, it lists "Medicare For All" and "replace Culinary Healthcare after 3-year transition or at end of collective bargaining agreements". It's not the first time the two camps have clashed. On health care, it says Biden, Klobuchar and Steyer would "expand Obamacare with public option", while Buttigieg would "have 'Medicare for All Who Want It".

"It's disappointing that Senator Sanders' supporters have viciously attacked the Culinary Union and working families in Nevada simply because our union has provided facts on what certain healthcare proposals might do", Geoconda Argüello-Kline, the union's Secretary-Treasurer, said in a statement, without sharing specific attacks.

George missed one game in early January with a hamstring injury and then another nine after briefly returning. Rivers said the pair reminds him of having Garnett and Ray Allen. "That is very similar".

The Nevada Culinary Union is handing out flyers that say Sen.

Argüello-Kline would not comment on the alleged attacks during her press conference, but it's been reported that Sanders' supporters have made threatening phone calls to the union and lashed out over social media. "With health care as a human right, unions will have more leverage to negotiate better wages and benefits".

"Harassment of all forms is unacceptable to me, and we urge supporters of all campaigns not to engage in bullying or ugly personal attacks", he said in a statement.

On Thursday, the state's most politically influential union, Culinary Union Local 226, announced it would not endorse a Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential race.
