STONEWALL DEMOCRATS OF SOUTHERN NEVADA HOLD FIRST DEMOCRATIC STRAW POLL OF 2010
Monday February 1st, the Stonewall Democratic Club of Southern Nevada held an informal straw poll during its general membership meeting in Las Vegas, at the Satay Malaysian Grille.
While this is the first straw poll of the 2010 midterm elections, it will not be the last. Several other Democratic clubs have planned their own straw polls for their membership meetings.
The straw poll was conducted by secret ballot. Ballots were counted by two Stonewall board members, and the count was observed by a member of the Clark County Democratic Party executive board.
US Senate: Harry Reid 96.2% uncommitted 3.8%
Congressional District 1: Shelley Berkley 100%
Congressional District 2: Dean Heller 7.6% Democratic challenger 77% uncommitted 15.4%
Congressional District 3: Dina Titus 92% uncommitted 8%
Governor: Rory Reid 96.2% uncommitted 3.8%
Lt. Governor: Paul Murad 73.1% Robert Randazzo 7.9% uncommitted 19%
Commission District G: Greg Espisito 46% David Parks 42% uncommitted 12%
If a candidate is not listed, it is because they received 0% or no votes. In no way are these results to be construed as officially sanctioned or as an endorsement of any one candidate.
The straw poll is just one of the many ways Stonewall will engage its members and candidates as we move closer to primary and general elections this year. Stonewall continues to foster change by "educating the LGBT community about the differences between the political parties; mobilizing the LGBT community to get out to vote on Election Day for fair-minded Democrats; and standing up when Republicans attack our families and our civil rights while we lead the Democratic party to continue improving its record on issues important to our community." *
