POLITICO: Nevada Democratic Party hopes Trump will be ‘albatross’ for down-ballot Republicans

As political leaders across the ideological spectrum weighed in Wednesday on a Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton match-up, the Nevada State Democratic Party had a snarkier take.

In a letter to “Dangerous Donald,” Chair Roberta Lange congratulated Trump on his victory in Indiana on Tuesday, which led to Ted Cruz and John Kasich suspending their campaigns. And Lange invited Trump to “come back to Nevada as soon as possible.”

“Nevada will be a key battleground up and down the ballot in 2016,” Lange wrote. “But we’re eager to see just how big of an albatross you can be for down-ballot Republicans.”

The chair added: “And we know for a fact your racist, misogynistic, anti-immigrant rhetoric will inspire even more of our supporters to get involved and elect Democrats.”
