Despite past Democratic wins, Trump making a play for Nevada

No group is more motivated than the 60,000-strong casino worker’s Culinary Union. About half of the heavily Latino, heavily female union is currently out of work and 50 of its members or family members have died from COVID-19.

The union has endorsed Biden and says it has turned its political organizing and canvassing program on earlier than ever and bigger than ever, with 350 people currently in the field.

Geoconda Argüello-Kline, the union’s secretary-treasurer, said her members will work “until the last minute to be sure we can get the last person to go vote,” and feel “the only way we’re going to get out from this mess is to remove President Trump.”
