Harris touts union-friendly Medicare-for-all plan at town hall with powerful Culinary Union

Geoconda Arguello-Kline, the union’s secretary-treasurer, highlighted the importance the union places on protecting its health care plan in her introduction of Harris, noting “the fight, the struggles, the civil disobedience, whatever we need to do to protect our health care.” 

The politically powerful union, which has a reputation for turning the tides of elections in Nevada, has not yet ruled out the possibility of endorsing a candidate who supports a single-payer health insurance system, though Arguello-Kline has stressed in previous interviews the difficulty of selling a candidate like that to her members. The union has also not yet indicated whether it plans to endorse ahead of Nevada’s Democratic caucus in February.
