Heading Down the Home Stretch to the Caucus

by Cindy Trigg

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.

Las Vegas, NV- In reaction to Florida’s announcement today that they are moving their Presidential Primary date to January 31st, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange issued the following statement:

“Florida’s announcement today risks the integrity and intent of the presidential nominating calendar and is a blatant violation of the rules agreed upon by the national committees of both Parties.  The Nevada State Democratic Party has already passed a resolution granting power to the Chair to do whatever is necessary to preserve the integrity of that window by moving up the date of our caucuses.  We anticipate moving up our caucus date in coordination with the other sanctioned early states, most likely in January.”

Visit Follows NV GOP Chair Tarkanian Admission That NV GOP May Bow to Bullying Tactics of RNC Instead of Moving Caucus Date Ahead of Flordia Primaries

LAS VEGAS – Yup, that’s right. We’re bringing out the chicken.

This afternoon, LV Sun Columnist Jon Ralston reported that Nevada GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian is considering forgoing Nevada’s coveted 3rd in the nation GOP caucus status after being threatened by a senior Republican National Committee official if the state party moved its caucuses ahead of Florida’s new Primary date of January 31.

Nevada Democrats today said they will stand up to Florida’s bullying tactics and anticipate moving their caucus date up ahead of Florida’s rule-breaking new Primary date in coordination with the other sanctioned early states.

But Nevada GOPers are apparently just too chicken to do the same.  Here’s a picture recapping the chicken’s visit (larger picture available) :

TWEETS FROM JON RALSTON’S INTERVIEW WITH GOP NEVADA CHAIRWOMAN AMY TARKANIAN

RalstonFlash Jon Ralston:  Just talked to NV GOP Chair @MrsT106. Very concerned about loss of 1/2 delegates, talked 2 RNC. May set date first wk of Feb right after FL.

RalstonFlash Jon Ralston:  .@MrsT106: “It’s not fair that a bigger state can bully us in this manner.” But w/so few delegates, she frets NV will have no voice at all.

RalstonFlash Jon Ralston:  NV Chair @MrsT106 said NV would still have clout after FL as “gateway to the West.” Methinks 3rd in nation better, no matter delegate count.
