A super PAC backed by unionized nurses, some of the most committed supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, reported Monday spending $268,000 to help Sanders in California ahead of the state’s June 7 primary.
National Nurses United for Patient Protection reported several payments for printing and advertising with a Latino print network.
National Nurses United, a 185,000-member union that includes the California Nurses Association, endorsed Sanders and his single-payer health care plan early and has been a vocal critic of his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, the union’s red “Bernie Bus” rolled into California.
Monday, Sanders rallied supporters in Southern California while former President Bill Clinton stumped for his wife throughout the Central Valley.
