– Nevada Republican Party Chairman Mark Amodei released the
following statement regarding Nevada’s Presidential Caucus:
“Last evening, the Nevada Republican Party’s State Executive Committee voted to hold the Nevada Republican Presidential Caucus on Saturday, February 18, 2012, making our state the third Republican presidential contest overall and the first in the Western United States.
“This decision will allow Nevada Republicans the opportunity to help select our party’s presidential nominee. This is an important responsibility, because the failed economic policies of President Obama have made Nevada the nation's leader in unemployment. Nevadans cannot afford four more years of his job-killing agenda in the White House.”
NOTE: Last month the Nevada Republican Party State's Central Committee voted to make Nevada’s 2012 Caucus binding and proportional.
