For context, here's what happened in Nevada on #ElectionDay: Flipped a US Senate seat from R to D - Yes, @RosenforNevada! Kept 2 house seats for Dems. I see you @StevenHorsford and @SusieLeeNV! Elected a Dem governor for the 1st time in 20+ yrs. Governor @SteveSisolak! ... /1
Flipped almost all our constitutional offices from R to D - including our first ever African-American statewide victor. That's Lieutenant Governor, @KateMarshallNV, Attorney General, @AaronDFordNV, Treasurer, @ZConine, and Controller @cebyrnecpa. Not even close to being done. /2
Elected the first majority female state house under @JasonFrierson's leadership. 29 seats! Won in 2 competitive state senate seats with @donderoloopnv and @MelanieScheible - plus still too close in SD20 with @pazina_julie. #NVLeg 2019 will have more women than ever before. /3
We now have a majority women state supreme court in Nevada. Seriously. /4
Conservation champion @Jones4Nevada will head to the Clark County Commission with @tsegerblom. Big deal! /5
And let's end with ballot initiatives - Automatic voter registration, removing the sales tax on feminine hygiene products, and creating a renewable energy portfolio - all passed and need to pass again in 2020. Huge! /6
None of this happened on accident. Organizers and volunteers talked to voters and committed them to vote, candidates stepped up and said they'd lead - even when it was a tough fight to victory, donors invested in building long term programs.../7
This was a team effort - in every way. I know a lot of people who were in the trenches everyday this year. They are warriors - relentless in their pursuit of civic engagement and change. I am full of gratitude for them. We did it, Nevada Dems. WE DID IT. /The End
