Another Nevada Democrat Snubbed By Reid
Democrats are having difficulties finding a candidate to run in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, but recently Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) said, “we’re getting very close. I had some good meetings last week in Vegas.” Reid claimed that the 3rd CD is a good district for Democrats and when pressed about Democrats’ hard losses in recent elections, he said, “maybe we didn’t have very good candidates.”
In 2012, John Oceguera was one of those disastrous candidates. He wouldn’t even take a position on ObamaCare and eventually lost to Rep. Joe Heck by over 7 points.
Oceguera is now running in Nevada’s 4th Congressional District where Reid plans to endorse a candidate by the end of August. At this point, it’s safe to assume that Oceguera isn’t a frontrunner for that endorsement.
