(Mike Zahara) – No, I didn’t attend the Nevada Democrats’ state convention but my Sis did and so did a handful of others who reported the worst turnout since at least 1996, with only about a paltry 200 people in attendance!
Each year since 2000, we have had successive attendance growth and activist participation across the state and spectrum culminating in 2008, but Harry Reid Inc pissed it all away by steering the organization to All Harry, All Day–and I’ve said it a thousand times (at least!), you need to grow the party so we can run on solid tickets, but no one in their right mind wants to share a ticket with Harry, including Rory.
Blame Rebecca Lambe-Jolley, slackey-lackey Travis Brock, and the very worst Dem chair in America, Sam Lieberman, for pissing it all away and angering thousands of local Dem activists in every single Nevada county in just 18 short months!
No Dem state party apparatus in America is more decimated than the NSDP…none even comes close to the destruction laid bare and as proven at the state convention last week.
Few activists, few wins and you guys can thank Uncle Harry and remember why we are voting his sorry, deadly poisonous ass out in November!
It’s so bad that only one eboard member chose to stand for re-election!
I can hardly wait for Rochelle-y to take over the Ops and fire all of them next year; a feeling shared by thousands of Nevada Dem activists; many who are readers here!
Trust me, it will be the very best thing that ever happened to Dems here and we’ll pick up the Ensign seat in 2012 as an added bonus!
