WashoeDEMS Pass Resolution to House Nevada’s 2022 Coordinated Campaign

Nevada Elected Officials and National Democratic Organizations Come Out in Support

Today, the WashoeDEMS Executive Board voted in favor of providing logistical support for the 2022 Nevada coordinated campaign. This motion ensures Democrats are able to begin the critical groundwork it takes to win up and down the state next November and has the support of Nevada elected officials as well as national Democratic organizations.

“Washoe County is a critical swing county in our battleground state and will play an outsized role in electing Nevada’s leaders in the 2022 elections,” said WashoeDEMS Chair Sarah Mahler. “That’s why we believe this is the right move to support our efforts to re-elect Governor Steve Sisolak, Senator Catherine Cortez Masto and Democrats up and down the ballot.”

“I want to thank WashoeDEMS Chair Sarah Mahler and the entire WashoeDEMS Executive Board for their leadership and their commitment to electing Democrats across the state,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “This election cycle couldn’t be more important for Nevada and for the country. Winning in 2022 means we are able to build on the incredible progress we’ve made and ensure our state recovers from this pandemic. We will work together with the state party and county parties in every corner of the state to achieve our shared goal of protecting and expanding on our Democratic success.”

“Nevada Democrats are focused on making a difference for working families across our state, and we need to start engaging our voters now so we can continue to deliver in 2022 and beyond,” said Senator Catherine Cortez Masto. “This will be an incredibly challenging election cycle in Nevada, and organizing statewide, including in our state’s largest swing county, will be key to Democratic victories. I appreciate Sarah and the WashoeDEMS Executive Board’s efforts to ensure that we can get to work and keep making progress on the issues that matter most to Nevadans.”

“The DSCC is committed to protecting this battleground Senate seat and ensuring Senator Cortez Masto and Democrats’ Senate majority can continue delivering for working families,” said DSCC Executive Director Christie Roberts. “I applaud the work of WashoeDEMS to jumpstart this effort and look forward to working as a team to protect and expand our majority in the U.S. Senate.”

“After flipping the Governor’s mansion for the first time in twenty years in 2018, the DGA is committed to ensuring it stays in Democratic hands in 2022,” said DGA Executive Director Noam Lee. “We look forward to teaming up with Nevada Democrats to keep the Silver State blue and build on the hard work Governor Sisolak and legislative Democrats have put in over the last four years.”

“From health care to education to job creation, Democrats have taken important steps to help Nevada’s working families recover from this pandemic,” said Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro. “Protecting and expanding our majority in the Nevada Senate in 2022 ensures we can build upon that progress. On behalf of Senate Democrats, I want to thank WashoeDEMS for providing the infrastructure and support we need to win statewide next November.”

“Expanding our majorities in the State Legislature has allowed Democrats to pass progressive policies like expanding access to the ballot box, ensuring corporations pay their fare share, and fighting climate change,” said Speaker Jason Frierson. “We must work together to organize across Nevada if we want to continue enacting policies that lift up hardworking families and that work must start today. I am grateful to Sarah Mahler and the WashoeDEMS for their forward thinking and commitment to keeping Nevada blue.”
