There’s a few stories circulating about the Nevada caucuses that are of interest today. On The Fix, Chris Cillizza noted that Obama aide David Plouffe called him today and said Hillary Clinton “should be considered the “prohibitive favorite” in Nevada due to her strong support within the state party establishment and her large lead in early polling.”
Also making the news and the blogs today is the controversy over the lawsuit that is “seeking to block the Democratic Party from having caucus sites on the Strip.” John Kerry has weighed in on that one over on TPM and a few days ago Jeralyn at TalkLeft offered her opinion.
In an interesting side note on all of this, I received an email tip last night from a reader that told me that some Culinary Workers union members are worried about backlash from their union stewards if they don’t vote for Obama.
The Obama campaign must be in fact worried about their ground game in Nevada, as they are pulling out all the stops with Kerry scheduled to campaign there for Obama on Thursday and Friday.
UPDATE: Taylor Marsh has more.
