Las Vegas, NV – The Nevada State Democratic Party announced today that it is partnering with current and former Southern Nevada Black Elected Officials for new radio ads that highlight key information for Nevada’s First in the West Democratic presidential caucus. The 30-second spots will run on KCEP 88.1 FM, a public radio station and member of the African American Public Radio Consortium serving the Las Vegas community. Senate Democratic Leader Aaron D. Ford, Senator Pat Spearman, Assemblywoman Dina Neal, Assemblyman Tyrone Thompson, Las Vegas City Councilman Ricki Barlow and former Assemblyman Jason Frierson have recorded versions of the ad that will run over the next 10 days.
“Our country is finally back on track because of President Obama’s leadership, but the Republican candidates for president would all repeal the Affordable Care Act, block a minimum wage increase and undermine our voting rights if they make it to the White House,” said Senate Democratic Leader Aaron D. Ford. “These radio ads will help remind voters in Southern Nevada to participate in our First in the West presidential caucus so we can build on President Obama’s record and keep our country moving forward by electing a Democratic president in 2016.”
Nevada’s Democratic caucuses are on Saturday, February 20 at 11 a.m. PT. Democrats allow same-day voter registration at caucus locations, and any eligible voter who will be 18 years old by Election Day (November 8, 2016) can caucus. Eligible Nevada voters can now use the NV Dems website to pre-register for the caucus and find their precinct caucus location.
