NV Dems Chair: GOP Frontrunner Donald Trump Is an Embarrassment

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on Donald Trump’s blow-out victory in Tuesday night’s GOP caucus:

“Donald Trump is an embarrassment to the country, and Nevada Republicans handed him his third victory in a row last night. This is the most extreme Republican presidential field in history – and if there was every any doubt, Nevada Republicans confirmed that Trump is unquestionably the GOP’s frontrunner for the White House. Since he entered the race, Trump has offended and insulted veterans, women, immigrants, Muslim-Americans, and the disabled. Trump is not a media phenomenon; he is a divisive demagogue, and he is now one significant step closer to being the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nominee. While Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have desperately tried to compensate for the Trump effect by further pandering to the worst instincts of the Republican base, Tuesday’s results were a devastating blow for both candidates. Rubio just suffered a humiliating fourth consecutive loss in the GOP primary, and Cruz has consistently been out-Trumped since Iowa. Throughout this process, Nevadans have been repeatedly reminded that the Republican Party’s agenda would block commonsense immigration reform, roll back the clock on women’s health and return us to the failed policies that crashed our economy and sent thousands to the unemployment line.”
