We are now in the home stretch for the Caucus. Many of you attended in 2008 to make our Nevada Caucus the attention of the U.S. It was full of energy, new places and new people for the party and yes confusion.
Of course we have our candidate this time, President Barack Obama. We need to show the Republican Party our commitment to keeping President Obama in office. This unfortunately is best said by money to contact the voter, but we are not asking for money. What we are asking is for you to come out as a voter and lend your voice to the continuance effort of Democratic principals. To keep the energy strong for our President. To prove the pundits wrong and to oil up the machine that worked for us in re-electing Senate Majority Leader Reid.
While some are disappointed in the way the last three years have transpired, stop and think about what the President has accomplished. There will be information provided for you at the caucus to see has been accomplished. Some moan, everything is political. Yes it is, that is why it’s called politics. It has been called a contact sport, but in our party there is room from the most robust and the person who would like to cast their vote silently and go home knowing they helped.
We have lists of the 2008 Caucus Attendees. Will you please help us make a few phone calls to fellow Democrats and ask them to attend. If you don’t not want to participate in this way please attend the Caucus on Saturday January 21st at Douglas HS Media Center 11:00 a.m. If you are not yet a registered Democrat, you may do so at the Caucus or with the County Clerk.
Meet with old friends and new friends who share your values on how we must treat the least among us, our planet, our seniors, civil liberties, regulations in banking, etc. and of course how we need to move education forward to once again become the foundation of freedom, equality and opportunity.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to seeing you on the 21st of January.
