Joe Biden is about to throw in the towel after suffering this humiliating defeat
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign is on its last legs.
Coming off disastrous finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, Biden cannot afford anymore faceplants on in nominating contests.
But now Joe Biden is about to throw in the towel after this humiliating defeat.
The Nevada Democrat Caucus is next Saturday.
Biden claimed he finished poorly in Iowa and New Hampshire because the states do not have large minority population.
The former Vice President pointed to Nevada – where Latinos make up 30 percent of the voter base – as the first step toward a comeback.
In the Nevada Caucuses the union bosses reign supreme.
The Culinary Union has 60,000 members, which gives the union bosses the power to sway elections.
As recently as a few short weeks ago it was assumed that the Culinary Union would endorse Joe Biden, which would give him a decided advantage in the caucus.
The union’s political director used to work for Biden and he seemed to be a sure bet for the nomination.
But after Iowa and New Hampshire the union bosses backed off.
Geoconda Argüello-Kline who serves as the Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Workers Union revealed at a press conference that the union would not endorse any candidates in the upcoming caucus.
“We’re going to endorse our goals, what we’re doing — that’s what we’re going to endorse,” Argüello-Kline declared.
“We’re not going to endorse a political candidate.”
Establishment Democrats like Biden can always count on the support of Union bosses.
The Culinary Union’s decision to stay out of the race is the final death blow to Biden’s campaign.
Their refusal to back Biden means the union bosses see Biden’s campaign as mortally wounded beyond saving and that Biden is in for another poor finish in Nevada.
Should Biden finish fourth or fifth in Nevada it will be difficult for his campaign to continue on to South Carolina.
