The entire staff of the Nevada Democratic Party quit over the weekend after hardcore Democratic Socialists ended up winning key leadership positions.
According to The Daily Caller, party executive Alana Mounce sent out an email stating her whole staff was quitting after Nevada Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer won her seat. The group of individuals who quit together included every employee and their consultants, who all took severance checks as part of leaving the party.
Staff members later said that the new Democratic chair was just going to give them the boot anyway, but Whitmer herself has denied those claims.
“I’ve been putting in the work,” Whitmer said during an interview on The Intercept’s podcast, Deconstructed. “What they just didn’t expect is that we got better and better at organizing and out-organizing them at every turn.”
Diehard progressives won all five leadership positions within the party on Saturday night. These candidates were all supported by the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.
“Before the election, the Democratic Socialists had moved $450,000 into the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s account, which would use the money to help the 2022 re-election campaign of vulnerable first-term Democrat, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, the Intercept reported,” The Daily Caller said.
“Run by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the tightly-run and highly-organized progressive establishment coins itself the “Reid Machine,” The Intercept reported. The battle between Nevada’s socialist progressives and the Reid Machine began when Bernie Sanders ran for president in 2016,” DC’s report continued.
Folks, if you don’t think that socialism poses a serious threat to the future of our nation, the fact that five socialists just took over the Nevada State Democratic Party ought to prove otherwise.
Whitmer beat her competitor by 30 votes.
