National Nurses United backs Bernie Sanders

National Nurses United, the largest nurses' union in the country, plans on Nov. 15 to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president in the Democratic primary election, The New York Times reports. 

The endorsement is not a surprise — the union previously endorsed Mr. Sanders in the 2016 election and has been vocal in its support for "Medicare for All," the single-payer health plan proposed by the candidate, according to the report. The union's super political action committee gave Mr. Sanders $5 million in the 2016 primary. 

Union leaders told The New York Times the organization plans to back Mr. Sanders, but will not support attacks on other Democratic candidates.
