Erin Bilbray claims on both her campaign website and Facebook page the Henderson Police Officers Association has endorsed the Democrat to represent Nevada’s third congressional district.
The Police Association says that isn’t true.
I have reached out to HPOA to confirm first-hand the endorsement was never given and to find out if they will be asking Bilbray to remove the claim from her website. I have yet received a return call.
Bilbray campaign manager Adriana Martinez told me she plans to look through the endorsement letters to determine if they received one from HPOA.
“If there was an error, I will rectify this as soon as possible,” Martinez told me.
Bilbray is running against incumbent Republican Joe Heck who was elected to the third district in 2010.
Early in the campaign, Democrats mobilized for Bilbray behind a 2,700 ballot lead in voter registration. The campaign faltered leading Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call to rate the district “safe Republican” and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to declined to fund airtime on her behalf.
