he's just giving republicans fodder for the fall and clinton shouldn't rise to the bait. we're going need the sanders voters to turn out and vote for secretary clinton in the fall. so i think it behooves both of our candidates to tone it down a little bit. >> and local union leaders tell us they have not decided which candidate they will back yet. during our one-on-one interview with sanders last night, he said he's for policies, trade policies that benefit american workers before ceos, so likely a talking point he'll speak to this morning. reporting live in center city, i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. >> thanks for that, pamela. today bill clinton will be there to speak for his wife. his visit comes just one day after hillary clinton appeared at that pennsylvania afl-cio
