The Democratic presidential candidate spoke in Las Vegas to several hundred members of the powerful Culinary Workers Union Local 226, whose members say they want to keep their robust health care plans.

Warren did not go into detail on her Medicare for All proposal, which calls for a shift to a government-run system, but says she wants to preserve union members' access to the care they're getting.
