DLCC, AFSCME, and SEIU Release Stinging TV Ad in Nevada’s 15th Senate District

WASHINGTON— The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) announced today that its Nevada PAC, DLCC Nevada, along with Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) began running an advertisement to inform voters in Nevada’s 15th Senate District how Senator Greg Brower is out of touch with the values and priorities of voters in the Reno-area district.

“Senator Brower claims he went to Carson City to change how Nevada operates, but it is Carson City that has changed him,” said Michael Sargeant, Executive Director of the DLCC. “Senator Brower's record and statements speak for themselves. Voters should be fully informed before they make their decision on who will represent them in the state Senate.”

“Just as hardworking men and women are preparing to enjoy a well-deserved retirement from a lifetime of honest hard work, Senator Brower has promised to take away their healthcare safety net,” said SEIU Local 1107 President Al Martinez. “Nevada’s workers have put in years on the job to earn their Medicare and Medicaid and they need a leader who will stand with them and that is not Greg Brower.”

"We need representatives who will stand up for working Nevadans and not reward companies who ship jobs overseas," said Seth Johnson, AFSCME Assistant Political Director. "Senator Brower is more concerned with helping line the pockets of corporate interests than reducing Nevada's 12% unemployment rate."

The ad highlights Senator Brower's support for providing tax breaks for companies that send jobs overseas, his advocacy for making it more difficult for women to get birth control, his commitment for repealing new coverage requirements for women’s cancer screenings, and his desire to end Medicare “as we know it,” which would cost Nevada seniors thousands of dollars a year to get the health care they have earned.

The ad started running today and will run for the next three weeks. You can view the ad below.

3. 266 votes, Democrats are looking at "anomalies" involving provisional ballots


http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Leslie-concedes-Nevada-Senate-race-to-Brower-4018726.php

Snip: A veteran legislator who resigned her seat in a safe Democratic district and challenged Brower, Leslie led the race most of the night Tuesday but lost by 266 votes as the final absentee ballots were counted.

Sen. Mo Denis said Wednesday that Democrats are looking at "anomalies" involving provisional ballots.

Leslie says while those issues may continue to be debated, she believes in the integrity of the voting process and will leave the issue to election officials.

2. Two problems. 1) Peanuts are legumes, not nuts. 2) Cashews are seeds, not nuts.

4. Interesting. The early results showed several thousand votes, I thought.

But you are correct. Surprised there isn't a mechanism for an automatic recount.
