Ahead of Trump Visit to Nevada, DNC Unveils New Billboards Blasting Trump’s Failed Pandemic Response
October 18, 2020
With early voting underway, digital billboards in Reno, Carson City, and in Las Vegas across from Trump International Hotel will highlight how Trump’s failures have hurt Nevada families
Ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to Carson City today, the Democratic National Committee is unveiling a slate of new digital billboards in northern and southern Nevada to highlight Trump’s failed pandemic response, which has resulted in over 89,000 coronavirus cases and taken more than 1,700 lives statewide.
The billboards in northern Nevada, located on U.S. Highway 50 in Carson City and on Interstate 580 in South Reno, will run today and greet many of the Nevadans traveling to Trump’s event. The billboard in southern Nevada, located between the Sahara Avenue exit off Interstate 15 and Las Vegas Boulevard, is less than two miles from Trump International Hotel and near the Las Vegas Strip.
“Voters across Nevada won’t miss this message: Trump’s ineffective, incompetent coronavirus response has cost too many Nevadans their lives and their livelihoods,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “As Trump arrives in state today, he’ll be greeted by the consequences of his failed record — hundreds of thousands of Nevadans out of jobs, working families struggling to make ends meet, and people who are frightened that Trump will rip away their health care coverage in the middle of a pandemic. The last thing Nevada needs right now is Trump dropping in to hold another reckless rally to distract from his broken promises. With early voting underway across Nevada, Trump’s political stunt today will remind voters exactly what they don’t like about him as they head to the polls to hold him accountable for his failures.”
Earlier today, the Nevada State Democratic Party hosted a press event with U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen at East Las Vegas Community Center to lay out the case for rejecting Donald Trump’s failed record as voters across the state cast their ballots.
