First, I want to invite everyone to join me and fellow Republicans tonight at the Nye County Republican Party headquarters in Pahrump as we await the Election Day results for a wide variety of important GOP primary races – including my own for Assembly District 36.
Don’t worry. I guarantee tax-hiking RINO (Republican In Name Only) Assemblyman James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson won’t be there. He absolutely HATES being around constitutional conservatives!
Secondly, I want to thank everyone who’s stood by my side during this tough and vicious campaign…
* We’ve been up against a shameless, mud-slinging incumbent who’s been willing to lie about anything and everything in order to return to the Carson City swamp.
* We’ve been up against the GOP “establishment” which has worked feverishly behind the scenes to slit our political throat.
* We’ve been up against some of the most powerful, deep-pocketed special interests and lobbyists who don’t want to lose their assembly water boy.
* We’ve been up against the lieutenant governor’s law firm which has hired a self-righteous moralist who has spear-headed ballot initiatives to shut down my businesses.
* We’ve been up against the local “good ol’ boys” network of government employees and bureaucrats who abused their power to harass and temporarily shut down one of my businesses.
* We’ve been up against what I consider corrupt local elected officials who have aided and abetted the targeting of my businesses during this campaign.
* We’ve been up against disgruntled former employees who have spewed out outrageously false accusations of the worst kind for purely political vengeance.
* We’ve been up against a hostile media that was willing to repeat these unsubstantiated allegations while refusing to hold our opponent to the same standard.
* We’ve been up against far-left liberal activist groups who have rushed in with last-minute negative and false attack mailers.
* We’ve been up against local developers hell-bent on taking our water who jumped into the race with last-minute full-page newspaper attack ads.
* We’ve been up against leaders of various labor unions who have come to Oscarson’s rescue with anti-Hof billboards and mailers.
* We’ve been up against Democrat activists who for the last few days have been operating a secret telemarketing “boiler room” operation out of Las Vegas spreading anti-Hof propaganda.
Despite all of the odds and forces against us, we STILL have a chance to pull off one of the most remarkable political upsets in Nevada history tonight…
THANKS TO YOU!
Now, if you haven’t voted yet, please do so today.
As we noted a few days ago, Nevada has a history of VERY CLOSE political races like the one we’re in. So it’s not just a cliché to say “every vote counts.” Here are the examples again…
- In 1972, Dorothy Wilson and Billy Weyer tied in a Justice of the Peace election.
- In 1978, Marshall Bouvier defeated Leonard Howard by just two votes in a Story County district attorney race.
- In 1982, Charlotte Crutchley and Dorothy Moyle ended up tied in a Eureka County race for country clerk
- In 1996, Anne de Martini lost a Republican primary election for State Assembly by six votes to Jeff Knight. But there was a voting error and they had to do a special election, which de Martini won by one vote.
- In 2002, Republican Dee Honeycutt defeated Democrat R.J. Gillum by just two votes for Esmeralda County Commission.
- In 2004, White Pine County commissioner candidates Robert Swetich and Raymond Urrizaga each received 1,847 votes.
- In 2008, there were two ties between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama; one in Genoa and the other in Zephyr Cove.
- That same year, Chris Sewell and Kim Toulouse each got 1,839 votes in a race for the Verdi TV District Board
- In 2010, Nye County Commissioner Butch Borasky and challenger Carl Moore, Sr. tied
- That same year, Jackie Berg beat Carrie Wright by three votes in another Eureka County race for county clerk
- In 2011, Tanya Flanagan and Linda Meisenheimer tied in a North Las Vegas city council primary.
- In 2014, Randy Kirner defeated Lisa Krasner by just eleven votes in a State Assembly race in Reno.
- In 2011, Wade Wagner beat Richard Cherchio by one vote in a city council race in North Las Vegas.
As my friend and Trump adviser Roger Stone warned at our campaign rally last week, don’t take the chance of losing this race by one or two votes.
Go to the polls. And urge your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to go to the polls.
Then join us tonight at the Nye County GOP HQ for a “yuge” victory celebration!
