“Nevada will be the road to the White House in 2020. Our state is a microcosm of the country from our strong Latino, Asian Pacific Islander and African American communities, to our fierce organized labor and proud rural communities with a long history of mining and ranching,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “As the nation keeps its focus on Nevada in anticipation of our First in the West Caucus, I invite every candidate running for the Democratic nomination to continue coming to Nevada, hear the stories of Nevadans and make it clear how they'll fight for the Silver State when they make it to the White House.”
“No other early nominating state possesses Nevada’s unique diversity and is as reflective of our country -- that's why I am grateful to join in hosting such an important conversation with our Democratic candidates here at home,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “Here in Nevada, we've made tremendous progress for working families in just the last few months. Now is the time to come together to preserve that progress and ensure we elect the Democratic candidate to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.”
“As the Trump Administration works to undo all of our progress, Nevada continues to buck the national trend,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “When we flipped the Governor’s mansion, a U.S. Senate seat and seats up and down the ballot in 2018, Nevadans made clear we don’t want another four years of Donald Trump. I couldn’t be more excited to have all of our amazing candidates in Nevada to lay out their plan for the country. This is their opportunity to tell Nevadans how they will grow our economy, make health care more affordable, and reform our immigration system once and for all.”
Nevada is the first Western state and the third in the nation to make its voice heard in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
