Democrats have many more votes out there to ‘get” than Republicans (basically in Clark County)………….has the GOP turnout hit a plateau?…….so far neither party has much to crow about, but the Democrats have more worries at this point in time…………but Democrats do have more votes out there to try and get………….the Democrats can narrow the gap or close it if, IF, Democrats decide to get off the couch and out to vote……………..stay tuned to the Clark County turnout over the coming week, this is where the impact will be the rest of the way.
