NV Dems Statement on Mike Pence Campaigning in Henderson

Henderson, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on Donald Trump’s running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, campaigning in Henderson today:

“Today’s visit is a reminder for Nevadans that Governor Mike Pence is the most extreme vice presidential pick in decades, a choice by Donald Trump to lean in to the worst aspects of his divisive candidacy. Pence has bragged that he was “Tea Party before it was cool,” and that’s confirmed by his disturbing history of supporting mass deportation, spearheading anti-LGBT legislation, opposing marriage equality, and trying to defund Planned Parenthood and restrict a woman’s right to choose. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is focused on creating an economy that works for everyone – not just those at the top – and has a plan to make thebiggest investment in new, good-paying jobs since World War II.

“It’s also fitting that self-proclaimed Tea Party radical Danny Tarkanian was on hand today to embrace Mike Pence’s extreme agenda and double down on his embrace of Donald Trump, a temperamental bully who is dangerously unfit to be the next President of the United States. When Nevada voters reject the Trump-Pence ticket in November, they’re also going to hand this five-time loser another well-deserved electoral defeat.”
