State Democratic Party to host dinner in November featuring presidential candidates
The Nevada State Democratic Party announced Monday that it’s hosting a dinner with presidential candidates in Las Vegas before the first-in-the-West caucus.
The dinner will be held Nov. 17 in Las Vegas. Other details, including location, have not been released.
A similar dinner in 2016 drew roughly 2,200 attendees who heard speeches from three Democratic candidates — Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley — that year.
Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy released a statement touting the dinner as a sign of Nevada’s key role in the upcoming presidential election, considering that state voters elected Democrats up and down the ballot in 2018.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have all of our amazing candidates in Nevada to lay out their plan for the country,” he said in a statement. “This is their opportunity to tell Nevadans how they will grow our economy, make health care more affordable, and reform our immigration system once and for all.”
The dinner will be the evening before an Indy forum featuring presidential candidates Nov. 18 at The Smith Center.
