Nevada State Democratic Party Chairman William McCurdy II released the following statement on the results of the 2018 midterm elections:
“Congratulations to all our Democratic nominees on their hard-fought campaigns. I am thrilled to congratulate Jacky Rosen, Steve Sisolak, Dina Titus, Susie Lee, Steven Horsford, Kate Marshall, Aaron Ford, Zach Conine, Catherine Byrne, and our Senate and Assembly candidates on their incredible victories last night. I also want to thank Nelson Araujo and Clint Koble for having the courage to stand up for Nevada’s values and for dedicating themselves to serving our beloved state.
“These candidates weren’t the only thing on the ballot this election — everything we hold dear as Nevadans and Americans was on the line. Democrats have made it clear that we are the party that fights for working families and for better economic opportunity and equality for all Nevadans. With our newly-elected Democrats leading the way, Nevadans will know they will have leaders on their side fighting for them — fighting to protect their access to health care, to ensure their kids can attend a quality public school in their neighborhood, and to bring more good-paying jobs that last to our state.
“Democrats’ victories last night don’t just belong to our candidates — they belong to every Nevadan who stood up to make his or her voice heard in this election. Our state saw record-breaking turnout for a midterm election, and it’s clear Nevadans were motivated to make their voices count this year. Once again, the NV Dems’ unrivaled organizing program made the difference, registering tens of thousands of voters, knocking on hundreds of thousands of doors, and having countless meaningful conversations with Nevadans about what was at stake in this election. Now that we have the results of this year’s midterms, the NV Dems will look to the future, and continue organizing in communities across the state to fight for equality, opportunity, and a better life for all.”
