Ending the Democratic Party's 38-year losing streak in the 2nd Congressional District starts with acknowledging the fact that Democrats won't elect the next congressman from Northern Nevada.

That's because Dems represent only 30 percent of voters in this district. The only path to victory is by building a coalition of Dems along with Trump-troubled nonpartisans and moderate Republicans.

If I'm fortunate enough to become the nominee, I will run as a unity candidate who brings together all honest, decent, reasonable people -- regardless of party -- to defeat Trumpism. That's the goal of our Truth Matters campaign.

Let's do it. Today is the last day to cast your ballot in the Democratic Primary by mail or in person.

If Truth Matters to You

Join the fight

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated
— Thomas Paine
December 23, 1776

Opinion | The party of lying liars

Columnist Jennifer Rubin is talking to you, Mark Amodei, when she says:

“Both Trump and his House enablers are unfit to serve since personal and political considerations obliterate their ability to detect the truth and thereby to uphold their public obligations. It would be refreshing if House Republicans simply admitted Trump violated his oath but that they are unwilling to abide by theirs and remove him. The candor would be preferable to the non-stop lying.”

I can personally attest to our congressman lying and ordering his staff to lie continually on his behalf. I’m convinced this will only end when they leave office.

The 2019 federal deficit is almost $1 trillion. No one seems to care.

This is one of my favorite examples of the hypocrisy of our politics. It just goes to show that the tea party was never about stopping the immoral fiscal irresistibility of those terrible tax-and-spend Democrats. It was just another strategy to gin up the hatred of one tribe for another. Donald Trump found a whole new set of hate buttons to push and won the admiration and loyalty of the GOP establishment for his ingenuity. Is it any wonder why a plurality of voters in this country prefers to identify as independents? Me included.

Opinion | If Trump Were Anyone Else …

More than two years ago I started calling my congressional reps every day. I asked them to please introduce for a resolution of censure against President Trump for his lie that President Obama tapped his phone in Trump Tower before the election. I often asked them what other employee in America could be caught lying on the job and not receive, at the very least, a formal reprimand, which is what a censure resolution is. Trump has now been caught lying on the job more than 13,000 times (Washington Post Fact Checker). STILL no reprimand.
Nicholas Kristof’s column asks a similar question about the “favor” that Trump has admitted to asking for in return for the release of nearly $400 million in congressionally authorized security aid to Ukraine.
