Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement in response to the latest jobs report:
“Nevada is yet again feeling the brunt of Donald Trump’s chaotic handling of the coronavirus as we top the nation with the highest unemployment rate. Donald Trump made clear from the beginning he doesn’t care about Nevada families. He blocked our small casinos from much-needed small business loans, he failed us when our front line workers needed personal protective equipment, and he threatened to withhold funding from our state because of debunked claims of voter fraud in our all-mail primary election.
“To make matters worse, the Nevada GOP has worked to block the use of rainy day funds and disbursing coronavirus-relief federal grants for child care subsidies for struggling parents, rent and mortgage assistance, and public safety agencies. With more than 100,000 American lives lost and more than 30 million out of work, our country is in desperate need of real leadership. Come November, we will elect the president hardworking families deserve in Joe Biden.”
