Henderson, Nev. – Tonight, community leader Jacky Rosen won her primary election to become the Democratic nominee for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. Rosen released the following statement:
“It has been an honor and a privilege for me to go out over the past few months and learn more about the issues that matter most to the 3rd District. I’ve seen firsthand the real struggles facing working families in Southern Nevada, and I’m running for Congress to turn those challenges into real solutions. I am ready to work across the aisle to solve problems and stand up to extreme politicians who thrive on partisan gridlock and dysfunction.
“My ultra-conservative opponent Danny Tarkanian is an enthusiastic supporter of Donald Trump, and he has repeatedly refused to condemn Trump’s bigotry, sexism and lack of judgment. And whether it’s wanting to privatize Social Security, block immigration reform or restrict women’s access to health care, Danny Tarkanian is too reckless and too out of touch to represent this district. I look forward to winning this seat in November so that Southern Nevada families have a voice fighting for them in Washington.”
