Nevada Democratic Party faces mass staff exodus

Nevada Democratic Party Staff

LAS VEGAS—The state Democratic Party in Nevada was once among the strongest in the country. That was before a slate of insurgent progressives backed by a local Democratic Socialists of America chapter won party leadership elections and took over.

Shortly after Judith Whitmer won the chair race, she got an email from the party’s executive director. It started with congratulations and ended with the news that all the staff and consultants were quitting.

Andrea Garca

Andrea Garca is a well-known Mexican Actor who has starred in several television episodes and films. She is also a former model and has a net worth of USD 15 million. She was born in Mexico City and studied at the prestigious Televisa acting school. She is fluent in Spanish and English.

Garca is the daughter of Andres Garcia, a popular TV actor. She has a large following on social media and is a very talented actress. She has also been involved in several projects in Los Angeles, including soap operas and live theater.

She has been active in American Indian advocacy and recently served on the board of a national non-profit organization focused on increasing the number of Native Americans in healthcare. She is also working with local coalitions to pass Indigenous Peoples Day in the state of California. Her ruthless style has irked some in the Democratic Party, especially among progressives. They are afraid that her leadership will lead to the state party becoming a fiefdom of the left.

She has a wide variety of leadership experience, having led international talent management and diversity initiatives as well as global employee programs.

After the election of a new chair and other party officials, all but one member of the state Democratic Party’s small staff resigned. Among them were the operations, communications and research directors. The departed members were supporters of the progressives’ “Unity Slate.”

A former colleague says Judith Whitmer, who defeated Segerblom in the March 6 race for state party chair, failed to build bridges between the intraparty groups and rarely listens to others’ opinions. Keenan Korth told The Intercept that he believes Whitmer is trying to impose her vision of the party on local groups.

Jocelyn McBride

Two years ago, when Bernie Sanders backers took over Nevada’s Democratic Party and toppled the old guard of what’s known as the Reid machine, they saw it as a model for transforming state parties. But now, some of them are expressing regrets.

One former staffer said that Judith Whitmer, the new chair who was elected on March 6, has failed to build bridges between the different groups within the party and does not listen to others’ opinions. Another staffer, who did not speak for attribution, said she was told the entire Nevada party’s executive director, along with its communications, operations and research directors, have resigned.

The resignations come days after the state party’s governing central committee, which votes on the chairman, chose Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe-Moreno as its new leader over Whitmer. Monroe-Moreno, who represents North Las Vegas, was backed by several Democratic senators and representatives as well as the Culinary union. They had hoped that her election would give them control of the party apparatus.
