SENATE DISTRICT 15 CANDIDATE DEVON REESE STATEMENT ON OPPONENTS’ EMBRACE OF TRUMP
RENO, NV - Today, Democratic candidate for Nevada State Senate District 15 Devon Reese released the following statement after the Reno Gazette Journal reported that both Republican candidates for Senate District 15 have embraced Donald Trump’s campaign for president.
“I’m disappointed that both of my Republican opponents have wholeheartedly embraced Donald Trump’s campaign for president. Trump’s rhetoric doesn’t reflect the values of the community where I grew up and that I continue to call home. Supporting Trump’s message of bigotry and intolerance sends exactly the wrong message to young people across Washoe County when we should be encouraging them to embrace the diversity our community has to offer. As a father of two teenage daughters, I could also never support someone who has repeatedly belittled, ridiculed, and objectified women as Trump has done. I sincerely hope my Republican opponents will reconsider their support for Trump’s campaign.”
The Reno-Gazette Journal reported yesterday that Republican state senate candidates Eugene Hoover and Heidi Gansert have “expressed their support” for Trump’s presidential campaign.
