- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Liz Foley
March 8, 2007 Chairwoman,
Clark County Democrats
We, the undersigned, appreciate the efforts State Democratic Party Chairman Tom Collins has made to address concerns regarding the August presidential debate in Reno, NV. We believe the latest proposal is reasonable and addresses most of the concerns raised by MOVEON and others.
Not all of us originally supported the idea of working with FOX, but many of us did because we know that a significant number of Nevadans – including Democrats – watch the network, and we want to use the opportunity of our early caucus to reach out to those viewers.
We all want to work together to unify our party, move forward and address the pressing issues that all Nevadans and Americans grapple with each and every day. Ultimately, that’s the reason why we are all Democrats and why we care so passionately about the Nevada caucus.
We look forward to the August debate, when the Democratic presidential candidates will have the opportunity to reach out to voters in Northern Nevada and throughout the West as we focus on Western issues.
We pledge to do everything we can to ensure this debate is a success.
