A few 2020 Democratic presidential candidates spoke to the Culinary Union forum on Tuesday night in Nevada, ahead of Saturday’s caucuses; this group is Nevada’s most powerful labor union. The two viable female candidates remaining in the race, Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), deserve an award for their level of political pandering.

Sen. Klobuchar seemed to take a page from the playbook of Beto O’Rourke, who was once a rising star in the Democratic Party.

Sen. Warren strayed from her usual routine of claiming minority status, and instead opted to appeal via the gender card:

The Culinary Union elected not to endorse a candidate before Nevada's caucuses. It has recently been outspoken against Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan, per CNN:

"Presidential candidates suggesting forcing millions of hard working people to give up their healthcare creates unnecessary division between workers, and will give us four more years of Trump," the union said in an English- and Spanish-language one-page leaflet that went to workers.
