Several Democratic presidential aspirants joined picket lines recently, bidding for union support as the 2020 campaign kicks into high gear, The Hill reports.

With nearly all declared candidates having said they will not accept corporate campaign donations, some are looking to head off scrutiny of their previous connections to big business and want to strengthen their labor bona fides, the publication noted.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, as well as former Vice President Joe Biden, rallied along with striking Stop and Shop workers in Massachusetts last month. Others sent support messages via social media.
