— Brian Dempsey, Candidate for U.S. Representative (NV-CD2)
As you all know it is about 6 weeks until early voting for the Primary Election begins (May 24th thru June 6th). That means its decision time for the Democrats to decide which of the candidates will give us the best chance to win this seat. We all know this seat is going to be a challenge and a very long shot to win, but it is winnable! I know that if we choose the right person, and we all come together we can do it.
I started my campaign just over a year ago. I started early because I knew it would be hard. People have told me that I can’t win, that I shouldn’t even try. One year later I am still here! I will not quit! I will not let the negative thoughts of others persuade me to give up. I have overcome enough bad times in my life to know that quitting is not an option.
I understand why the leaders of our party give up on this District. I understand why they have so much negativity. I understand I may lose this election. I also understand leadership. Real leaders find a way to make things happen. Real leaders don’t give up. I may lose, but nobody will ever be able to look at me and say that I didn’t try.
I encourage you to research all of the candidates. And you need to decide who will give us the best chance to win. I hope that when you vote, it will be for me. I want the chance to beat Mark Amodei. I do not want a repeat of 2012 and have a person on the ballot that does not belong there. If I lose the primary, whoever wins will have all of my support. I am not running against the others, I am running against our “Do nothing Congressman.” I feel that I give us the best chance to win.
This election is about the future. I want to be a leader of the Party, the State, and the People. I want to be your Representative in D.C. Why? Because you deserve better, Nevada deserves better, and the people of the United States deserve better!
We can do this!
Thank you everyone!
