Congressional District 2 candidate Brian Dempsey says:

“I believe in telling voters exactly where I stand on the issues.  I support Common Core, a robust Postal Service, win-win environmental policies, and raising the FICA tax threshold.  I oppose raising the retirement age and cutting benefits with chained CPI.  If you’re looking for a millionaire lobbyist, I’m not your man.  I’m just a Main Street grocer and a Dad who understands the importance of SNAP benefits and how tough the Great Recession has been for struggling Nevada families.  You can find me on Facebook or go to my website at: www.dempsey4congress.com

This is your chance to talk to Brian Dempsey – about immigration, climate change, XL pipeline and your other concerns.  Meet the man, learn about his political background, and discuss why he should go to Washington D.C. to represent CD2.

It’s Decision-Making Time

— Brian Dempsey, Candidate for U.S. Representative (NV-CD2)

Dempsey03As 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!

Koch Bros Pursuing Election Domination

The Washington’s Post’s “The Fix” blog posted charts that show, clear as day, how the Koch brothers’ Americans For Prosperity is absolutely dominating the airwaves in states with competitive U.S. Senate races.

No wonder Nate Silver’s predictions are giving Republicans the edge!

AFP01

A companion chart for the most competitive House races tells a very similar story.

AFP02

The Koch brothers’ primary political organization is outspending both the Democratic Senate and House PACs by more than 2-to-1!  The Koch Brothers and their allies (Exxon Mobil, Monsanto, and others) spend their money to make America safe for corporate polluters, to let big banks run amok with the financial systems and to protect gains for the 1% at the expense of the rest of us.  This kind of spending by billionaire funded organizations on demonstrably negative ads should make it infinitely clear that we need to get the dark money out of our politics.

Those negative attack ads are just that.  They tell you absolutely zip-point-nothing about the candidate they’re supporting.  Instead, they tell half-truths and out-right lies to demean our Democratic candidates to influence how you’ll vote.  Do a bit of reading. Research a couple of topics.  Learn to spot the lies.  Read their platform, because that will tell you exactly what they intend to do once elected.

Until we can get that money out, it’s extremely important that you don’t just sit back on your couch and let this election pass by.  You need to make sure you understand the issues and what’s at stake.  You may not be able to contribute $$$ to any given campaign, but there is one thing you can do.  You can get up off your couch, head to the polls and vote, bot for selection of an effective Democratic candidate during the Primary election, and then again for a Democratic candidate for the Nevada House seats.

I work those polls each year.  I’ll look forward to seeing you show up to cast your ballot.
