As a former Democratic Candidate for Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, I whole heartedly endorse Elizabeth Mercedes Krause as a great candidate for that Office. Elizabeth is a breath of fresh air on the political scene. She’s smart, well-grounded, and probably less partisan than most candidates. That alone should qualify her above many candidates.
Elizabeth has a strong background in the area Nevada needs most: Education. Her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and her Master’s Degree in Administrative Leadership tell me Elizabeth is smart and strategic in her thinking. With her emphasis on American Indian Education and being well versed in minority issues in a diverse state is a plus, no matter how you look at it.
As a Gun Sense Voter, it tells me that Elizabeth knows and understands her constituency, a combination of urban and rural areas. Her principle of “protecting our rights while balancing and caring for our neighbor’s rights” are well-founded. I trust Elizabeth is not too far to the Left or the Right.
In regard to the Republican Candidate she may face, I will say this: Elizabeth is not riding on the coattails of some higher or past power. When we realize that they are too weak to stand on their own two feet without bowing to President Trump, we will recognize that Elizabeth towers over them.
I urge you to follow Elizabeth and her journey. Give her a chance by giving her your vote and support. I think she will surprise many of us with her courage, wisdom, and resolve. In a political environment that is poisonous to say the least, she truly is a breath of fresh air.
