Hillary Clinton Wins Nevada Democratic Caucuses

by Brandon Lorenz February 20, 2016


Today, HRC released the following statement after Hillary Clinton was declared the winner in the “First in the West,” Nevada caucuses:

“Today, the Silver State helped ensure we will send another champion for LGBT equality to the White House,” said Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin. “We’re proud of HRC’s members and supporters throughout Nevada and across the country who have stepped up to fight alongside Hillary Clinton in this election. For millions of LGBT people across our nation, everything is at stake in November.  The leading Republican contenders have campaigned to block future progress on LGBT equality and to revoke, repeal, and overturn the gains we’ve made during President Obama’s time in office, and we must ensure no opponent of equality ever occupies the Oval Office.  Hillary Clinton has proven she has the record, the vision, and the strategy to win and lead from her first day in office.”

The Human Rights Campaign has endorsed Hillary Clinton and sent staff to organize members and supporters in key early states including Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada -- and South Carolina ahead ofnext Saturday's primary.

With 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide HRC is planning an unprecedented organizational effort to register and mobilize the nation’s pro-equality majority and elect pro-LGBT candidates up and down the ballot. In 2016, HRC expects that the pro-equality vote will be larger, stronger, and more energized than at any point in history.

Exit polls show that in 2012 at least six million LGB Americans voted in an election decided by less than five million votes. Today, in key states like Ohio, North Carolina, and Florida, the population of LGBT adults is greater than the average margin of victory in the last three presidential elections.

Polling done by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner for HRC shows that a 55 percent majority of voters are less likely to support a candidate for president who opposes allowing same-sex couples to marry. This majority includes Independents, married women and white millennials. All of these groups voted Republican in the last congressional election.
