To the Voters of AD19
I would like to thank you for your support during this rough and tumble campaign. We fought a hard battle with a grassroots campaign that many of you donated to as well as worked hard for. I applaud your commitment for a better Nevada.
We were outspent with special interest money coming out of Las Vegas and Carson City, from the casino industry, unions and lobbyists. From May 21st through June 10th we were both required to report donations for that short period of time. Our campaign reported $3,310.00. Chris Edwards reported $34,625.00 most of it coming from Sheldon Adelson. So we were outspent 10 to 1. Why was that? The people can figure it out or ask Edwards himself. I do know our polling was very good and there are other issues to be addressed in this election and they will be shortly.
I am proud to say we did not get on the train of special interest money because in the end they will want something for donations as large as Edwards received.
Chris Edwards is quoted as saying “the voters of District 19 are smart enough to see through the lies and the other stuff from my opponent”.
You need to ask yourself why if they were lies, did he not come forward immediately to give you corrected information. Instead he spent many thousands of dollars on a final mailer blitz that went out on a nearly daily basis towards the end of the campaign. I did not and will not lie to any of you at any time. I ran a clean ethical campaign. And I will never sit back and allow anyone to say otherwise.
Again thank you for your support and help.
