“Democrats just saw their 2012 playbook fall apart as Nevada voters refused to buy Democrats’ Medicare scare tactics and misinformation campaigns,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “This election sends Democrats another warning that Democrats up and down the ballot next year cannot escape accountability for their failed economic policies.”
Medicare policy was a major focus in the ad war between Democrat Kate Marshall and Republican Mark Amodei, but the issue was not as effective for Democrats in Nevada as it was in the special election in New York’s 26th Congressional District earlier this year. In NY-26, Democrat Kathy Hochul pulled off a surprising upset in a Republican district.
“Nevadans have handed an unpopular President Obama and his party yet another rejection message for making a bad economy worse,” Sessions added.
