Dems: Please caucus, even if it’s the Republican caucus

The state Democratic Party is advertising not only for its own caucus, but the Republicans' as well.

In a new spot running statewide, Sen. Harry Reid walks through a room in Searchlight (birthplace of the Majority Leader).

"The presidential candidates are listening. So whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, caucus on Saturday the 19th. Let them hear your voice and be part of the change America needs."

Meanwhile, a graphic comes up saying "Attend Democratic or Republican Caucus Saturday, January 19th."

Reid told us that a robust turnout in both caucus would benefit Nevada.

"I think Republicans should have a good caucus," he said.

Kirsten Searer, spokeswoman for the state party, says that as independent and Republican voters learn about the caucus in coming days, they can re-register at their caucus sights to participate in the Democratic caucus. The Republican caucus is closed to new registrants. The party spent $150,000 on the ad buy.
