Nevada Democrats want western state to be first primary stop

RENO, Name (AP) – Nevada’s Democratic congressional members urged the Democratic National Committee on Friday to make the western swing state the first stop in the primary and point to a strong midterm run as evidence why it should be No. 1.

It’s the latest in a growing debate over who should gain the invaluable political clout to be first in the nation as Iowa’s half-century run stands on shaky ground. For months, state delegates have fended off criticism that there aren’t enough diverse voters and don’t predict which candidate will win the primary.

Nevada congressmen said the results of the midterm elections, including the re-election of Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto after many considered her the most vulnerable incumbent, “reinforced why we need to hold the first presidential primary.”

“Nevada is a working-class, pro-labor state with one of the most diverse populations in the nation and a commitment to voting rights that sets an example for the nation,” they said.
