Nurses Riding Into California On The ‘Bernie Bus’
National Nurses United, a union representing some 185,00 nurses, has spent $2.6 million supporting presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Now it is turning its focus on California.

California Nurses ‘Feel The Bern’
The “Bernie Bus” is coming. A bright red charter bus plastered with an image of the Vermont senator among a sea of nurses is expected to cross the California state line in early May. The billboards are already here. Drivers see a silhouette of Bernie Sanders’ unkempt white head of hair and glasses with a checklist of his stances on jumbo-sized ads along Auburn Boulevard outside Carmichael, Highway 50 and Interstate 80. Both types of political advertisements bear the name of the same sponsor: National Nurses United. (Luna, 4/15)
