NV Culinary Union for Jacky Rosen.JohnLocher.AP

Members of the Culinary Union in Las Vegas cheered Tuesday night when their candidate won – yet this image of organized labor is increasingly rare in U.S. politics dominated by money. These are people who make a modest living; kitchen workers, housekeepers, porters of all races and genders, single moms and struggling dads who spend all day or all night on their feet. They have jobs but they need a reliable health care system; that’s what brought them out to back their candidate. The #1 issue this year was health care. (John Locher/Associated Press)
