KSNV: State Democrats prepare for possible major role in presidential selection

LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — Nevada could play a pivotal role in the nomination fight for the presidency.

In five weeks, our state will be the first Western state, and the third in the country to make its voice heard in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Local Democratic lawmakers are hosting a mock caucus training, ahead of caucus day.

Saturday morning, Spring Valley High School’s cafeteria transformed into a training ground.

“This mock caucus is a first step on what will ultimately happen on February 20th,” said Nevada State Democratic Leader Aaron Ford, of District 11. “We’re going to do what I call practice picking our next President.”
