Associated Press
Biden in Vegas takes on Sanders’ gun votes in fiery speech

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joe Biden, standing on a Las Vegas stage roughly 1,000 feet from the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, took on White House rival Bernie Sanders for his past vote to exempt gun manufacturers from liability for shootings.

The former vice president devoted the majority of his Saturday night speech at a Democratic gala on the Las Vegas Strip to deliver a fiery charge against the National Rifle Association and gun manufacturers, vowing to hold gun makers accountable if elected president.

“When I’m the president, we’ll take them on, remove the immunity and allow those parents who are trying now to sue for the pain and mayhem they have caused,” Biden said on stage at the Tropicana casino-resort. The resort sits adjacent to the grounds where a gunman in 2017 unleashed a torrent of gunfire on a country music festival—an incident that only Biden referred to Saturday night.

Biden, after decrying “carnage in our streets” and the anguish of families whose loved ones were killed in gun violence, said he “will not rest until they’re able to sue the gun manufacturers and get a ban on assault weapons.”

Biden didn’t cite Sanders by name when referring to a 2005 federal law that shields gun makers from liability in most crimes, but said, “some of the people running for office voted for that exemption.” ...

Biden’s speech came after a frenzied Saturday of campaigning across Las Vegas on the first day of early voting in Nevada’s Democratic caucuses. Biden, counting on Nevada’s diverse population to keep his campaign alive after disappointing finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, faces his biggest challenge in the Western state from Sanders. T he progressive icon is seen as the most well-positioned in the state and has reached deep into Latino neighborhoods.

Las Vegas Review-Journal
Thousands turn out for first day of early voting in Nevada caucuses

Nevada Democrats turned out in force on Saturday for the first day of early voting in the Democratic presidential caucuses, filling libraries, schools, businesses and community centers to help pick the party’s 2020 nominee.

Some Las Vegans faced a quick, simple process, while others in Henderson and Summerlin found themselves mired in huge lines and long wait times. In all, more than 11,800 voters had participated as of 5 p.m. Saturday, the Nevada State Democratic Party reported.

In Clark County, early voting locations began welcoming people around 10 a.m. Early voters are asked to fill in their top three to five choices for the nomination on a paper ballot and place it into a secure box. ...

The state party told voters Saturday they must make at least three choices or their voting card won’t be counted.

If a voter would like to only select one candidate, he or she could select “uncommitted” as the second and third choices.

Voters signed in and filled out a paper preference card, which they will use to select their top three to five candidates.

According to the party, those ballots will then be transferred to several hubs, electronically scanned and stored. They will be counted based on the voters’ precinct locations during the Feb. 22 caucuses. If a voter’s first choice doesn’t get enough support to be considered viable, the vote is recorded for the next viable candidate on their list.

All true but Addie and all, keep in mind who took over the Review Journal in what was like a coup -- Sheldon Adelson. Jon Ralston is much more reliable and neutral; Adelson loves to throw tacks in the road. Jon has the NV Independent. Of course RJ gets a lot of attention, but it's lots of propaganda and trying to hurt Democrats (or anything that crosses IMPOTUS).

Campaigns warn of chaos ahead of the Nevada caucuses

Campaigns said they still have not gotten the party to offer even a basic explanation of how key parts of the process will work. Volunteers are reporting problems with the technology that’s been deployed at the last minute to make the vote count smoother. And experts are raising serious questions about an app the party has been feverishly assembling to replace the one scrapped after the meltdown in Iowa. ...

Adding to the challenge is the complexity of Nevada’s caucuses. Unlike in Iowa, where caucuses are conducted in one evening, Nevadans have the option of voting early. At sites across the state, Democrats can rank their top presidential choices on a paper ballot.

On Saturday, caucus day, Democrats can gather at one of about 2,000 sites to vote for their preferred candidate. If their first choice doesn’t get enough backing, voters can throw their support behind someone else, a second round of voting known as “final alignment.” Early voting preferences will be treated the same way, as though the voter were attending in person. ...

“We are in constant contact with the campaigns,” said a state Democratic Party official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak more candidly about the process. “We communicate at a very high level with the campaigns . . . and we have kept them informed every step of the way.”

But several campaigns complained that those interactions seemed designed to avoid questions. Last Monday, multiple aides from different campaigns said they were given just minutes’ notice for an evening conference call announcing a key decision about early voting. The call was so sudden that one top campaign aide, in the middle of a caucus training for volunteers, was unable to join.

On Thursday, when the party released an update on early voting, several campaigns said they learned of the memo from reporters before they received it from the party.

Politico: Major Latino group backs Sanders on eve of Nevada caucus

Mijente is making its first-ever presidential endorsement.

A prominent national Latino group is endorsing Bernie Sanders four days ahead of the caucuses in Nevada, a state with a significant Hispanic electorate.

Mijente, a grass-roots organization that mobilizes Latinx and Chicanx voters, decided to make its first-ever presidential endorsement in response to President Donald Trump’s rhetoric and policies targeting Latinos. The endorsement adds to the growing collection of progressive groups coalescing around the Vermont senator, after earlier expectations they would be divided between him and Elizabeth Warren.

Nevada Independent
After starting early, strong in Nevada, Warren hopes for a comeback in the Silver State

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, speaking to a crowd of several hundred at the College of Southern Nevada’s Henderson campus Monday afternoon, began with a disclaimer.

“You can tell, I’m a little husky,” she said, the audience sympathetically laughing as her voice cracked. “I’m shaking off a cold, and I’m trying to do my best to save my voice.”

Still, she soldiered on — both with the town hall and her packed day of events in Las Vegas, which also included stops by SEIU Local 1107 and Cardenas Market — and, in some ways, she had to. After poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, where she came in third and fourth respectively, the Massachusetts senator is banking on a win in Nevada to reinvigorate her campaign ahead of South Carolina’s primary next week and Super Tuesday at the beginning of March.

A victory in the Silver State isn’t out of reach, either. Warren was the first Democratic presidential hopeful to visit the state as a declared candidate — Monday marked one year since her first Las Vegas rally — and she had the earliest and one of the strongest campaign operations on the ground, though she has since been surpassed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Vice President Joe Biden in staff size. She has about 50 staffers in the ground ahead of the caucus, compared to about 250 for Sanders, 130 for Biden and 100 for Buttigieg. ...

Though Democrats head to the polls for a final day of early voting on Tuesday, it’s still hard to write anybody off at this point — especially when so many Nevada voters are still making up their minds.

Nevada closes books on early voting period marked by long lines, high turnout

Some came in cars, or buses, or marching the streets behind Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders after a campaign rally. Some were still teenagers, participating only because they’ll be 18 by the time of the general election, while some needed the help of a walker, a cane or strangers.

More than 36,000 Nevadans opted to vote early in the first three days of Nevada’s Democratic caucus — the first time that the unique early voting option has been available in a contest of presidential preferences. Turnout levels in four days of early voting alone were not available at press time, but could amount to well over half of the total turnout in the party’s one-day, 2016 caucus, when 84,000 people participated.

While some complained of long lines, a lack of parking and a shortage of volunteers, many say they far preferred the early vote to the hours-long, at-times chaotic atmosphere of an actual caucus. For some, that’s because they’re new to the state and come from states like California that have a primary. Others say a bad experience last time has converted them to early voting. ...

With the specter of the Iowa caucus in the rearview mirror, the state’s Democratic Party took deliberate steps to ensure voters left behind both computerized and paper-based records.

I arrived in Vegas yesterday, for a bit of work and plenty of play. Until a couple of weeks ago I had no idea the Democratic primary would be taking place while I'm here. I just walked through the lobby of the hotel where the debate is apparently taking place tonight. NBC's Andrea Mitchell flew on the plane with me here from Dulles. ;)

Emerson College poll shows Bernie Sanders is the front runner in Nevada

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — It is less than 48 hours to the Nevada caucus and a new statewide poll shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders with a strong double-digit lead.

According to an 8 News Now/Emerson College poll, Sanders received 30.4%, following him is Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 16.9%, former Vice President Joe Biden with 16.1%, Senator Elizabeth Warren with 12.1%, followed by Senator Amy Klobuchar with 11%, Tom Steyer with 9.8%, Representative Tulsi Gabbard with 1.9%, and 1.8% of respondents said they would vote for someone else. ...

Sanders has performed well in recent national polls while at the same time he has repeatedly beat back claims he is too progressive to win against President Donald Trump.

Nearly 75,000 Nevadans took part in early voting for the caucus which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 22. It will be the candidates’ first test among voters of color, especially Latinos. The poll found that 20.3% of those surveyed identified as Hispanic or Latino. When it comes Sanders’ supporters, more than 60% of those identify as “other or multiple races.” That doesn’t include Hispanic/Latino, Black/African-American or Asian.

Additional results from the poll will be released later Thursday and throughout Friday on 8 News Now newscasts and 8NewsNow.com.

Reuters
Nevada Democrats report high early caucus participation

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Nearly 75,000 Nevadans participated early in the state’s Democratic U.S. presidential nominating contest, the party said on Friday, a sign of a potentially large turnout in the first test for the candidates in the diverse western United States.

Nevada on Saturday holds its caucuses, the third contest in the state-by-state battle to determine a Democratic challenger to Republican President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election. The party said the majority of the early caucus voters were first time participants in the process. The number of early participants is nearly as high as the entire caucus count from 2016, when 84,000 Nevadans participated. ...

“From the beginning, NV Dems has been committed to executing the most accessible, expansive, and transparent caucus yet in 2020,” Alana Mounce, Nevada State Democratic Party executive director, said in a memo released Friday.

“To meet this goal, we enacted an unprecedented four-day early voting period for the caucus. We made materials available in three languages and had more than 80 early voting sites in convenient locations in communities across the state,” Mounce added.

New York Daily News
Bernie Sanders is odds-on favorite as Nevada rolls the dice on Democratic caucus

What happens in Vegas definitely won’t stay there.

Bernie Sanders is the odds-on favorite to emerge with a jackpot win as the Democratic presidential race rolls into Nevada on Saturday — but there’s plenty at stake for all the candidates.

Sanders holds a double-digit lead in recent polls of Democrats in the Silver State, with Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren vying for second place far behind, along with current delegate leader Pete Buttigieg.

Any different result, especially a Sanders loss or even a narrow victory for the rumpled liberal senator, could shake up the fractious race as it moves on to South Carolina on Saturday, February 29.

One guy who definitely won’t win is Michael Bloomberg. Even though he debuted on the Democratic debate stage to decidedly mixed reviews, the billionaire ex-mayor isn’t even on the ballot until Super Tuesday on March 3.
