Dina Titus' New Fans

The next governor of the state of Nevada is making new fans everywhere. They range from high school students to presidential candidates.

This week former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner came to Las Vegas for a press conference and a fundraiser with Dina and other candidates are helping out as well. The Las Vegas Sun:
Warner hosted a fundraiser for Titus on Wednesday night, and the minimum donation was $1,000. (The Titus campaign said the event was well attended, but declined to say how much it raised; Warner's political action committee contributed $10,000.)
And yesterday Dina was in Carson City and talked to a group of Pioneer High School students. She clearly made an impression on the next generation of voters:
Student Raquel Gonzales said, "I wasn't thinking about voting before, but now I want to."

Several students said they were impressed with Titus' energy and passion about the issues she was addressing and for coming to talk to them.

"She cared enough to come and talk to the high school that people think is all bad kids. I like that she cares about making education better," student Jasmine Robertson said. "The questions we were going to ask her she already answered before we asked them."
Help Dina win!
