The chairman of the Colorado Democratic Partydelivered what seemed to be a stinging rebuke as he welcomed Republican efforts to bring to the RNC to the state, but his one-liner was nothing compared to the verbal beating by Nevada Democrats.
“However, I would caution the GOP; as long as their party demonizes immigrants, ostracizes women, and pushes an outdated and extreme agenda, nothing, let alone a convention, will help them win over the independent-minded voters of our great state,” Palacio said, in a news release.
Likewise, Nevada Democrats back efforts by state Republicans to host the RNC in Las Vegas that year, according to a November memo to RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
“The reason is simple,” they said. “Putting the national spotlight on Nevada Republicans for a week-long national convention will do more to damage the Republican Party’s brand than anything Democrats could possibly do.”
That was just a warm up of a fascinating attack on Nevada Republicans and some of the headlines they produced in 2012.
