This weekend, Nevada Democrats executed the largest weekend of action of the cycle turning the momentum and energy from a historic Democratic National Convention into action. The Nevada Victory team grew exponentially in the month of August, expanding our diverse, multilingual field team working in every county. Organizers and volunteers are deploying new techniques and technology to reach voters, including emphasizing relational organizing at a time when Nevadans are using technology to stay in touch more than ever.
This weekend of action comes as Republicans prepare to gather for a national convention that will undoubtedly underscore to Nevada families how disastrous another four years of Trump would be for our state. Volunteers set out to remind voters of the stark contrast between the Trump administration and the possibilities of a Biden-Harris administration. Across four days of the Democratic National Convention, thousands of Nevadans tuned into our pre-shows and watch parties which turned into thousands of volunteer shift sign ups for our weekend of action.
Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:
“Democrats are coming off of an incredible high after a weeklong convention that showcased the diversity, integrity, and heart of the Democratic Party and culminated with the nomination of a historic ticket. This week, we’re preparing to hear Republicans celebrate a Trump administration that has failed Nevada families by ignoring a global health crisis, failing to protect jobs, and using the pandemic to further his own gain. Nevada Democrats are as fired up as ever to elect real leaders up and down the ballot who will help build our state and country back better.”
