“Hillary Clinton is a Working Class Champion”
Las Vegas, NV (February 13, 2016) – Nevada Members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – rallied today in support of Hillary Clinton for President in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas event follows on the heels of LIUNA’s strong showing for Hillary Clinton in Iowa, New Hampshire and at events, rallies, and voter canvassing efforts across the nation.
LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan addressed a crowd of hundreds of LIUNA members from Local 872, and from all over the state of Nevada, and the Northwest region who gathered to demonstrate their support for Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton is a working-class champion. She will stand with us and she will fight for us and no one will work harder to defend the livelihoods of LIUNA families,” said O’Sullivan. “LIUNA members are an army of volunteers and voters working to elect Hillary Clinton.”
"Hillary Clinton has backed transportation infrastructure projects that put LIUNA members to work. She is committed to fighting for good jobs building America’s energy infrastructure and believes in a common sense approach to addressing climate change and the need for affordable energy through the responsible development of natural gas. There is no candidate I would rather have at my back than Hillary Clinton,” said O’Sullivan.
Following the rally, LIUNA members led a “Get Out the Vote” effort; assisting fellow union members with registration and knocking on doors to encourage Nevadans to caucus for Hillary.
