NV Dems Statement on Donald Trump’s Choice of Mike Pence for Vice President

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement today on Donald Trump’s unenthusiastic choice of Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be his running mate on the Republican ticket:

“Donald Trump choosing Mike Pence to join him as his running mate confirms that this is the most dangerous Republican presidential ticket in a generation. In Congress, Pence bragged about being part of the Tea Party movement “before it was cool” (it’s not). He’s best known for sparking economic panic in his home state by recklessly legalizing discrimination against Indiana’s LGBT community. This is par for the course for a far-right social conservative who has championed divisive causes like opposing marriage equality, defunding Planned Parenthood and restricting a woman’s right to choose. And his anti-immigrant record is in lockstep with Trump: Pence is for mass deportation and against comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship. Nevadans are going to reject this extreme Trump-Pence ticket and elect Hillary Clinton in November.”
