Machinists' union endorses Clinton for president in 2016

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton listens to a question from the audience during a community forum about substance abuse in Keene, New HampshireHillary Clinton on Friday won the endorsement of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, making it the second national union to give the Democratic front-runner the stamp of approval. The endorsement could give Clinton a significant boost as she seeks to woo labor, even as her main Democratic rival, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, has eroded her edge in opinion polls and has himself landed the endorsement of National Nurses United, the nation’s largest organization of nurses. Clinton is trying to win over labor – often a key source of volunteers and funds for Democrats – as part of an effort to build a broad coalition within her party and avoid a potentially damaging, drawn-out primary fight.
