Macron and Le Pen battle it out to woo blue-collar workers
Issued on: Modified:
Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen have both met with workers from the Whirlpool factory in Amiens, in northern France, as they compete for working-class votes. The centrist candidate is struggling to rally support in a region that voted massively for Le Pen in the first round of the presidential election. Meanwhile, former president Nicolas Sarkozy says he will vote for Macron, but insists his vote is not an endorsement of the candidate's policies.
