Here is what I have been waiting for all week:
Tbh, it is extremely hard to imagine a more meaningful endorsement. The NV Culinary Workers are some of the baddest political gangbangers in the country. This endorsement can swing the whole election in Nevada, and considering how volatile the Dem Primary is right now, the whole election along with it.
- Joe Biden or another moderate could still win Nevada. There is not much polling there and the big daddy union in Vegas is being extremely passive aggressive towards Bernie Sanders. I personally think they are trying to bone him without getting caught in the act:
I actually think this is important due to the fact that health care plans are the thing that unions tends to get their panties twisted-up the most about. Yes, buzzkill for Joe that he didn’t get the Culinary Workers Union endorsement, but this certainly helps and is at least as useful to Joe Biden’s hopes of winning the Nevada Caucuses as a six pack of warm Trulys is to my hopes of smashing at the Long Beach roller derby.
There is so much that can happen in the next few hours. I am buying BIDEN YES, KLOB YES and BERNIE NO in NEVADA like a motherf*cker.
But there is a non-zero chance that the Culinary Workers endorse no one.
There is, however, a zero percent chance they endorse Pete Buttigieg. former Dem Leader Harry Reid is basically the Godfather in Nevada and there is no way he would bone two of his former colleagues — Amy Klobuchar and Joe Biden — to endorse some ivy league squirt like Mayor Pete.
If Biden catches this endorsement, Nevada is winnable for him again and South Carolina switches back to a home game. If Klob gets it, her lane gets wider and you know where that goes..
Strap yourselves in boys.
