Famous last words. Tomorrow, the Nevada Democratic Party will hold the second caucus of the 2020 cycle, with the first in Iowa still so screwed up that no one’s sure who really won it. The debacle proved so embarrassing that the NDP dumped the tech partner on which their Iowa counterparts had also relied and created a new “low-tech” option to run their calculations — just as the NDP was introducing a new innovation of early voting to complicate matters even further.
Recipe for disaster? Nonsense, says NDP chair William McCurdy. Everything’s under control, he tells an obviously skeptical Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s New Day:
Nevada Democratic Party Chairman William McCurdy says the party is making sure that “what happened in Iowa will not happen in Nevada.”
“[We’ve] made sure to implement off-the-shelf, low-tech options… and help them eliminate human error,” he adds.https://t.co/ZXj5kwrRI6 pic.twitter.com/MKoMbykjaa
