RENO (AP) — The national chairman of the Democratic Party urged his faithful in Nevada Monday night to reach out to a constituency more typically aligned with Republicans — evangelical Christians.
Democrats are poised to recapture the White House because they are the most fiscally responsible party and will end the war in Iraq, said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
"This is going to be the first really diverse state that Democrats campaign in in 2008 and we need these caucuses to be successful," he said. "To have the caucuses in states that look like me is not the way to win elections."
"Nevada is an extraordinarily diverse state — Anglos, African-Americans, Latinos, American Indians. ... Our candidates are going to be stronger candidates because they have campaigned here in the caucuses."
