    February 25, 2020 268 COMMENTS I believe that Bernie Sanders poses an existential danger to our Republic, so is it incumbent on me to do all that I can to stop him. To that end, after leaving work on Friday, I drove 250+ miles to Las Vegas. Once I arrived, I googled “Nevada Biden Office” and drove to the nearest office, arriving at 9:16 p.m. after they had finished their last class. I spoke to the staffer asking how I could help. She gave me a crash course on how to be a “Precinct Captain.”

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called on the Democratic Party to abandon the caucus system on Sunday in a statement released following the caucuses held in his home state. Reid said in a statement that the Nevada Democratic Party "did a good job" with Saturday's caucuses following the chaos in Iowa after its first-in-the-nation contest, while calling on the caucus system to be dropped entirely. “I am so proud of the Nevada Democratic Party, its talented staff, and the thousands of grassroots volunteers who have done so much hard work over the years to build this operation.

    The chaos of last night’s Nevada caucus continues to ripple into Sunday. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg wants the Democratic Party to do a recount because of so-called irregularities and anomalies at multiple precincts, specifically involving early votes. Via Las Vegas Review-Journal: “Currently our data shows that this is a razor thin margin for second place in Nevada, and due to irregularities and a number of unresolved questions we have raised with the Nevada Democratic Party, it’s unclear what the final results will be,” said Hari Sevugan, Buttigieg’s deputy campaign manager.The Buttigieg campaign asked that the alleged errors...

  • Chris Matthews Likens Bernie’s Strong Nevada Showing to France Falling to Nazi Germany in WWII

    Cable news personalities had a lot to say about Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT) early lead in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, with MSNBC's Chris Matthews likening it to the shock of France falling to Germany during WWII. “It looks like Bernie Sanders is hard to beat... I think it's a little late to stop him, and that's the problem,” Matthews said during a panel segment. “It's pretty much over unless that changes.” He then dropped the eyebrow-raising WWII reference, seemingly as a way to describe how Sanders has—in his view—clinched the Democratic nomination. “I'm reading last night about the fall of...

    President Trump predicted chaos Friday on the eve the 2020 caucus in Nevada, saying Democrats want to win the White House and revamp health care but can’t even count. “I hear their computers are all messed up, just like they were in Iowa,” Mr. Trump told supporters at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “They can’t count votes.” Mr. Trump was referring to widespread reports that technological glitches will upend the caucus on Saturday, akin to app problems that seriously delayed caucus results in Iowa. Senior Democrats say it’s under control, but Nevada volunteers and operatives are skittish. After significant ribbing,...

    The Nevada Democratic Party won't say for sure whether results from Saturday's caucuses will be released on the same day that votes are cast. They're reminding people that it takes time to count votes and more time to report the results.But the operation they've set up will guarantee screw-ups somewhere along the way, given the technology involved and the simple fact that most volunteers who will be responsible for turning the results in to state party headquarters will be untrained in how to do it. Associated Press: Election officials, in general, have been raising concerns about public expectations to...

    The Nevada Democratic Party is notifying about 1,000 early-voters that their ballots have been voided for errors, the Nevada Independent reported Thursday. The number of voided ballots account for 2.8 percent of 36,000 ballots cast in three of the first four days of early voting. Election officials said they are counting another 39,000 ballots, which could result in more unusable ballots. An election official told the Independent that most of the errors were from people who failed to sign their ballots. Affected voters are being notified by text message and will have the opportunity to participate in-person at Saturday's caucuses,...

    Less than a month after the chaos in Iowa, Democrats aren’t promising to release same-day results from Saturday’s Democratic caucuses in Nevada either. Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez said the early vote and the multistage caucus process with three sets of results could affect when the results come out and they plan to emphasize accuracy over speed. “We’re going to do our best to release results as soon as possible, but our North Star, again, is accuracy,” Perez said Tuesday, giving no timetable. **SNIP** The DNC scrapped its plan to use an app to report votes in Nevada that...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign plans to ask for a partial recount of the Iowa caucus results after the state Democratic Party releases the results of its recanvass. Sanders campaign senior adviser Jeff Weaver told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that the campaign has had a representative in contact with the Iowa Democratic Party throughout the recanvass process. “Based on what we understand to be the results, we intend to ask for a recount,” he said. The campaign expects that the already slim margin separating Sanders from Pete Buttigieg for the lead in Iowa will remain...

That recanvass process began at 9 a.m. on Sunday. It includes 143 precincts in Iowa and around the world. “Specifically, what we are going to do is look at the evidence before us. A lot of that is going to related to the caucus math worksheets, the delegate summary sheets, for example. Those are kind of hard evidence pieces that we will look at,” said Iowa Democratic Party Rules Chair Melissa Peterson. Last week, the...

    LAS VEGAS - With the Nevada caucuses days away, campaign officials and Democratic activists are increasingly alarmed that they might prove a debacle as damaging as the vote in Iowa, further setting the party back in its urgent effort to coalesce around a nominee to take on President Donald Trump. Campaigns said they still have not gotten the party to offer even a basic explanation of how key parts of the process will work. Volunteers are reporting problems with the technology that's been deployed at the last minute to make the vote count smoother. And experts are raising serious questions...

    Having discredited itself with utter (and very public) incompetence in tallying up the Iowa caucuses, the Democrats are reportedly on the verge of another disaster in Nevada. Politico headlines, ‘A complete disaster’: Fears grow over potential Nevada caucus malfunction  Anxiety is rising over the possibility of another tech-induced meltdown at the Nevada Democratic caucuses on Saturday. In interviews, three caucus volunteers described serious concerns about rushed preparations for the Feb. 22 election, including insufficient training for a newly-adopted electronic vote-tally system and confusing instructions on how to administer the caucuses. There are also unanswered questions about the security of...

    The Iowa Democratic Party will ask a former Iowa attorney general and a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa to investigate the events leading to problems on caucus night and the party's response to them. The party's State Central Committee, which acts as a governing board, approved up to $50,000 to retain attorneys Nick Klinefeldt, who was a federal attorney appointed by President Barack Obama, and former Iowa Attorney General Bonnie Campbell to conduct the investigation. Both are Democrats in Des Moines. Party officials hope the review will take 45 days or less. But it wasn't a...
