Democratic presidential candidates attended an AFL-CIO forum on Saturday night in Iowa, ahead of their debate on Sunday morning in Des Moines.

Several of the candidates addressed the audience of union members in eastern Iowa — saluting the role that organized labor could play in the first caucus state. A sense of party unity was easy when the candidates spoke one at a time and directed most of their attacks at Republicans. However, the solidarity may fade when the Democrats confront one another in a real debate.
