NV Dems Statement On Erv Nelson Entering Race for State Senate District 6

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson released the following statement on the news that Assemblyman Erv Nelson will enter the race for State Senate District 6:

“Erv Nelson may try to package himself as a moderate Republican, but he has a long history of bigoted stances towards LGBT Nevadans. At a time when bullying is a national issue, Nelson voted to make it easier to bully kids who happen to be transgender. He also advocated for legalized discrimination, introducing a bill that makes it legal for someone to deny services to a Nevadan simply because that person happens to be gay. Nelson’s personal bigotry and antiquated social views have no place in the State Senate.”
