Bleeding Heartland: Nevada unions line up behind Obama

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Barack Obama is sitting pretty ten days before the Nevada caucuses,
having snagged the endorsements of the Nevada chapter of the Service
Employees International Union as well as the Culinary workers and
their parent union, UNITE HERE. UNITE HERE is the first national union
to endorse Obama. In September, the national SEIU was very close to
endorsing Edwards, but backed off and left the decision to state
chapters. Since then, 11 state chapters of the SEIU have backed
Edwards, and four or five have backed Obama.
