Nevada Looks to Stake Its Claim on the 2020 Race as Democrats Clash

Recommended Posts

LAS VEGAS — Nevada has a message for Iowa and New Hampshire: We don’t care how you think you narrowed the Democratic field. We will do our own thing.


This state, which will hold its caucuses on Saturday and is more diverse than either of the two that have held presidential nominating contests so far, is determined to shrug off the tradition that momentum gained, or hopes cruelly dashed, in the wintry, rural expanses of Iowa and New Hampshire shape what comes after.


“I don’t think either Iowa or New Hampshire reflect America,” said Jonathan Quitt, who works for a casino on the Strip and is a volunteer for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. “I think they’re small, white-bread communities without diversity.”

Good point. Gambling and prostitution don't reflect America, either.
