Clinton campaign and at-large caucus sites – Part Two

After double-checking, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton’s Nevada spokeswomancalled back the Sun last night to leave a voice mail saying that she had

been incorrect about one of the rules for the nine at-large Strip caucus

sites.

The spokeswoman, Hilarie Grey, said she had gotten the information

second-hand from someone who had misinterpreted a section of the rules.

In Grey’s defense, she and many Clinton team members have had little sleep

since the campaign's focus shifted to Nevada last week. She said she thought

she was having a casual conversation with a reporter when she passed the

information along Thursday night.

In that interview, Grey told the Sun that only workers for companies that

have more than 4,000 employees could caucus at the at-large sites--a

calculation that would rule out most non-casino workers.

About an hour later--after Sun reporters had gone home--she left a messaging

explaining that she was wrong.

To be clear: Any shift worker within 2.5 miles of the at-large sites can

caucus at those locations. That definition includes a lot of workers from

non-union businesses far from the Strip.
