The Nevada caucuses are fast approaching this month, and the Culinary Union -- the most powerful union in the state with over 60,000 members -- has yet to endorse a Democratic candidate for president.

Our guests weigh the issues that matter to the Culinary Union and where its endorsements landed historically. We also take a look at the most powerful national unions and federations such as the teachers unions, AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations), UAW (United Auto Workers), SEIU (Service Employees International Union), and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees).

Where do they stand when it comes to their endorsements for Democratic presidential candidates?
