Statement from 2016 Nevada 2nd Congressional District Democratic Nominee Chip Evans
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“Since November, I have put a great deal of thought into how I can best serve the great people of Nevada, and the United States. At this time, I can unequivocally state that I will not be running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District in 2018.
In the coming weeks, I will be speaking with voters, activists and leaders around the state to discuss how I can best serve Nevada, and advance the progressive movement.
We have an opportunity to turn things around in Nevada. Working families deserve leaders that will fight for them. Whether it be advocating for economic development that benefits all of us, improving access to affordable healthcare, supporting a prevailing wage, strengthening the rights for collective bargaining, or addressing Nevada’s broken tax system, Nevada needs a new direction.
I look forward to seeing how I can help Democrats throughout Nevada prevail in 2018. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but together, we can make the Silver State thrive again – for all of us.”
