Buzz Davis of BWB stated David Newby of WI and other labor leaders formed Labor for Bernie, one of the groups sponsoring the Debate Watch. Labor for Bernie is a national organization of union leaders and members organizing in support of Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination for President. They advocate that unions delay their endorsement process until we are further along in the primary process. "We are pleased that the AFL-CIO has now delayed its process of endorsing a candidate.”
