Live Blog: Nevadans turn out to caucus

February 22nd, 2020 - 9:55am
Months of organizing and television ads, a frantic two-week rush after New Hampshire, and Nevada Democrats are finally heading to caucus on Saturday morning to determine allocation of the state’s 36 unpledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Although the delegate haul is small, almost all of the party’s presidential hopefuls have made a concentrated effort to perform well in the caucus to continue or regain their campaign’s momentum.

PHOTOS: Candidates make last pitch to voters ahead of Saturday caucus

February 22nd, 2020 - 9:04am
Outside of Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who held events in Elko and Reno, every major Democratic candidate held their events Friday evening throughout the Las Vegas valley. Even President Donald Trump, who is avoiding a competitive primary in the state, held a mass rally Friday afternoon in Las Vegas while predicting chaotic results from the Democratic process.

Trump rallies thousands in Las Vegas, says Democrats will have ‘lots of problems’ with caucus results

February 21st, 2020 - 4:15pm
Trump, who rallied roughly 15,000 supporters inside and outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center on Friday, made the case for his 2020 re-election effort by touting high job numbers and low unemployment. But he took multiple asides to insult Democratic presidential candidates, tout his administration’s efforts to stop licensing for a nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, celebrate the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” men’s Olympic Hockey team and complain about a South Korean film (Parasite) winning Best Picture at the 2020 Academy Awards.

The geography of the Democratic caucus and why some campaigns are rallying supporters in rural Nevada

February 21st, 2020 - 2:00am
Several campaigns, especially those that have been knocking on doors in Nevada for months, believe that rural caucusgoers could drive up a candidate’s delegate count in a close contest.

Gloves come off, Bloomberg joins in final Democratic presidential debate before Nevada’s caucus

February 20th, 2020 - 2:00am
Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, at one point during Wednesday’s raucous presidential debate on the Las Vegas Strip, suggested her opponents take their sparring down to the MGM Grand for fight night. It was an apt comparison. The eight previous Democratic debates were marked by relatively civil policy disagreements interrupted by occasional dustups and memorable one-liners. On Wednesday night, the gloves came off.

Redistricting ballot question heads to Supreme court over ‘frivolous’ appeals

February 20th, 2020 - 10:41am
In the motion, attorneys for the group said that the appeal was not only another attempt to delay signature gathering for the petition, but also an “unmistakable misuse” of the legal process given that the opposing side had already prevailed in district court and required backers to use a different, watered-down “description of effect.”

On climate change, a priority for Nevada voters, debate reveals divide over how they would address fossil fuels

February 20th, 2020 - 2:00am
As Democratic Nevada caucus-goers weigh which candidate to support in the final days before declaring their preferences on Saturday, polling suggests climate change is at the top of voters’ minds. On Wednesday, at the final debate before the caucus, candidates all agreed climate change poses an existential threat. Where they diverged was over what they planned to do about it.
