REPORT: Campaign manager blames candidate’s loss on ‘difficult year to be a man’
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
A campaign manager of a failed judicial campaign in Nevada wrote that his candidate lost because it was a “difficult year to be a man and defeat a woman.”
David Thomas wrote in a letter that Mark Bailus’s loss to his female opponent, Mary Kay Holthus, was a result of the political climate, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The defeat was not by any means the fault of Judge Bailus, but more due to the political climate of the 2018 elections,” Thomas wrote. “Despite Judge Bailus’ great commitment, he could not overcome the pattern that occurred in all major judicial races between a man and a woman in 2018.”
Bailus, 66, was an incumbent appointed by former Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) to serve on Clark County District Court bench from May 2017 until the term expired last month, the newspaper noted.
In his application for a vacant seat, Mark Bailus included a letter from his campaign manager that blamed the gender of his opponent, Mary Kay Holthus, for his failed election bidhttps://t.co/00mXIMlHB1
