On Saturday, Democrats across the state came together in their communities for the 2018 precinct caucuses, an opportunity for Nevada Democrats to organize to win elections up and down the ticket in November.
At the midterm caucuses, Democrats elected delegates to the county conventions, chose representatives to serve on the county central committees, and discussed proposals to the party platform. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet candidates for office and sign up to volunteer for their local party this election.
“Caucus is the kickoff of election year, and Democrats are coming out of the gate with the wind at our backs,” said Donna West, Clark County Democrats Chair. “We’re excited to capitalize on the unprecedented grassroots energy Democrats have seen here in Nevada and nationwide to continue to turn our state blue in 2018.”
“Last weekend, Democrats showed how persistent we are about winning up and down the ticket in Washoe County and throughout Nevada,” said Sarah Mahler, Washoe County Democrats Chair. “Never before have so many races been so important to the future of our country and its democracy, which is why Democrats are fired up in every corner of our state.”
“In the past year, we’ve seen that if Democrats compete everywhere, we can win,” said Kimi Cole, Rural Nevada Democratic Caucus Chair. “Rural Nevada Democrats are more motivated than ever to organize and win this year so we can keep Nevada moving forward.”
