Today, the Nevada State Democratic Party announced the hire of Shelby Wiltz as 2020 Caucus Director ahead of Nevada’s First in the West Presidential Caucus. This is the earliest the State Party has brought on a Caucus Director in an election cycle.
“Shelby is incredibly talented and I am excited to see all she can accomplish as our Party works to make our 2020 caucuses more accessible and open,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “I witnessed Shelby’s hard work and dedication in 2018 as she helped orchestrate one of the most successful field programs in the country. Our organizing team, led by Shelby, executed a strong field program knocking more than one million doors. She was an integral part of our historic gains last cycle and she will help lead us down the path to success in 2020.”
“I am thrilled to continue working with the State Party after all of our achievements in 2018 and this time, helping to make sure we have our most successful caucus yet in 2020,” said Wiltz. “I know how much we can achieve when we engage with Democrats across this state and that’s exactly how we’re going to come together next year and select the Democratic nominee who will defeat Donald Trump.”
Shelby has been working to elect Democrats since 2013. She worked to organize volunteers, turn out voters and manage field programs on more than seven campaigns across the country. In 2018, Shelby moved to Nevada to become the Organizing Director for the State Party's Coordinated Campaign where she led the organizing effort that saw record turnout in a midterm year and elected a historic number of Democrats up and down the ticket.
