NV Dems Chair: All Eyes on Nevada

Las Vegas, NV  As Nevada’s First in the West presidential caucus becomes the next contest in the race for the 2016 Democratic nomination, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement:

“With the New Hampshire primary wrapped up, all eyes are now on Nevada as the race to be our Democratic nominee shifts to our First in the West presidential caucus on Saturday, February 20. With our vibrant Latino, African American and Asian American/Pacific Islander communities and the strong presence of organized labor here, no other early state comes close to matching our demographic, regional and cultural diversity. Nevada reflects a strong Western voice in the Democratic Party and the diverse electorate we need to mobilize to win in 2016. We are gearing up for a successful caucus with more than 200 caucus locations, more than 1,000 volunteers recruited to run their precincts, and mock caucus trainings happening in communities across our state. With our broadcast partners Telemundo and MSNBC, we are excited to host a town hall featuring both Democratic candidates focused on Latino issues in Las Vegas on Thursday, February 18. This is our first competitive caucus as an early state since 2008, and we look forward to welcoming Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders back to Nevada.”
