The Minnesota senator will be joined by top Democrats from around the Silver State
Minnesota senator and former presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar will headline the Nevada State Democratic Party’s virtual convention in June.
Party faithful will also hear from former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Gov. Steve Sisolak and all five Democratic members of the state’s congressional delegation, according to a Tuesday release from party officials.
“Nevada will be a critical state to win in 2020 if we want to elect Joe Biden to the White House and keep our Democratic majority in the House of Representatives,” Klobuchar said in a statement. “The Silver State has done incredible work electing Democrats up and down the ticket. From electing the first-ever female-majority State Legislature to flipping a U.S. Senate seat in 2018, Nevada has become a blueprint other battleground states work to emulate.
“I look forward to addressing the Democrats who will bring our party success once again in November.”
Gun control activist Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, is also scheduled to speak during the three-day convention, which was moved to an all-digital format last month due to the coronavirus.
The annual convention starts on June 11 and ends on June 13.
