Dem Leaders Call For State Party Chair’s Resignation

Chair Judith Whitmer doubled down in her defense unleashing a series of tweets gaslighting her Democratic colleagues

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro and Democratic Assembly Speaker Steve Yeager are not sending Valentine’s cards to Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer. Instead, they are calling for her resignation following a purge of forty percent of central committee members, including Steve Yeager, prior to the upcoming state party elections.

Late last week, committee members expressed their concerns in a letter to Whitmer, citing “serious concerns” over transparency, impartiality and the validity of the upcoming March elections.

Today, Cannizzaro and Yeager added their words of concerns to the ongoing battle, stating in part: “We are deeply disappointed by recent events that reinforce our concerns over the past two years that Chair Whitmer is not up to the task of managing basic operations and supporting Democratic campaigns in the most competitive battleground state in the country.”


The Nevada Democratic Party, under Whitmer’s leadership, submitted the following public statement in defense of their purge of their own voter rolls and further accuses their fellow Democrats of spreading “disinformation’

Whitmer personally responded by revealing that Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom supported her decision for his own removal from the central committee.


The Nevada Democratic State Party has been embroiled in scandal since Bernie Sander’s Socialists overthrew the party leadership and caused a split in the state party. As reported by The Globe:

Following Bernie Sanders’ win in Nevada, members of the Democratic Socialists of America overthrew the state party spurring mass resignations of Reid loyalists, compounding financial burdens and competing state party entities. The Democratic Victory Party was formed by Reid loyalists and “is fighting for Democratic wins up and down the ballot.”  The Nevada Democratic Party is “fighting for progress in the Silver State”.

The Nevada Democratic Party is now led by socialist Chairwoman Judith Whitmer who Harry Reid once referred to as a “good Democrat.”

The “good Democrat” doubled down in her defense unleashing a series of tweets gaslighting her Democratic colleagues:



Democrats are now accusing Democrats of “using GOP tactics, spreading disinformation, and undermining fair elections” in Nevada. Although unlikely that Whitmer will heed the advice of Cannizzaro and Yeager, it is likely that this feud is just getting started.

This is a developing story.
