Full Staff of Nevada’s Democratic Party Quits After Progressives Sweep Elections

HeadlineMar 10, 2021

In Nevada, the entire staff of the state Democratic Party has quit after progressive candidates endorsed by the Las Vegas Democratic Socialists of America swept state leadership positions in elections Saturday. For decades, the Nevada Democratic Party has been run by allies of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Ahead of the vote, the establishment Democrats moved $450,000 from the party’s coffers to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, where it can be used to help reelect first-term Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, who was recruited by Reid to fill his old seat.
