DNC Statement on Nevada’s First-in-the-West Primary

As polls close in Nevada, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement celebrating the state’s first-in-the-west primary: 

“From union workers in Las Vegas to teachers in Reno, Nevadans across the Silver State have set the stage to defeat Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans once again this November. 

“Nevada’s first-in-the-west primary is emblematic of Democrats’ commitment to uplifting voters of color, engaging the diverse coalitions that are the bedrock of the Democratic Party, and making it easier for everyone to make their voices heard. Building on the strong success in South Carolina this Saturday, Nevada’s primary makes it clear that our winning coalition is strong and only growing stronger. 

“Today is an important step, and Democrats are going to continue putting in the work to earn every vote in communities across the country from now through November and beyond.”
