Susie Lee Can’t Stake Claim to the Democratic Grassroots When Over Half Her Funding Comes From Just 101 Donors
Nevada’s 3rd District Deserves Better than A Candidate Propped Up by DC Operatives and Bankrolled by the Wealthy Elite.
Susie Lee can’t have it both ways, simultaneously boasting about her massive fundraising haul and pretending to want big money out of politics. Apparently, $1.5 million spent on a 2016 failed primary bid is not big money to her, or she would recognize the hypocrisy.
Despite outspending her opponents, Lee suffered a crushing 3rd place defeat in that contest. Criticized for her multiple homes, questionable investments, and a $658,000 personal campaign loan, Lee had a reputation as an “out-of-touch” socialite living a lavish lifestyle. Accusing her of trying to buy a seat in Congress, the Culinary Union made it known that she did not represent its members’ values. The voters in Nevada’s 4th District agreed.Read more

Jack Love (D) for NV-03 takes strong stance on gun reform.
Las Vegas, NV – “There is no reason for anyone to have weapons of war in this country. I want to see the assault weapons ban reinstated. We know it saves lives.” said Jack Love, Congressional candidate for Nevada’s 3rd District, a strong advocate for gun reform. “Thoughts and prayers are not enough to fix a problem that kills Americans every single day. As adults, we have been failing our children, and the time to act is now,” Jack lamented after the Parkland school killings, adding that he feels even greater resolve to be a voice in Washington for common sense gun laws.
He pointed out that “the American public is clamoring for our lawmakers to take action to protect our citizens.” Polling consistently shows overwhelming bipartisan support for basic measures like requiring background checks for all gun buyers, eliminating straw man purchases and loopholes, raising the legal age for gun purchases, banning bump stocks and high-capacity ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. Jack believes we can save lives while still respecting the second amendment.
Inspired by the student movement, he affirmed that NRA-financed politicians must go, because they have become a threat to our public safety. Furthermore, Love has also called upon Congress to lift the ban put in place by Republicans on the study of gun violence as a public health issue. His website states, “Lawmakers need to approach gun violence and fatalities as the severe public health issue they have become. If they are unwilling, Americans agree that we need to THROW THEM OUT!”
Jack vows to fight for meaningful legislation in Congress to protect American lives. His platform of common sense solutions to reduce gun deaths also includes criminal background check for ALL gun sales; strengthening enforcement of existing laws to avoid unlawful weapons trafficking; opposition to gun accessories that increase killing power such as high capacity magazines, silencers, and bump stocks; supporting Red Flag Laws that allow courts to temporarily restrict gun access from a person who exhibits dangerous warning signs; preventing felons, domestic abuse offenders and abusers under restraining orders, and people on the no-fly list from having guns; and combating the gun lobby's attempts to arm teachers.
Jack’s campaign team will be in attendance at the March for Our Lives on Saturday, March 24 to show solidarity and demand action.

Democrats and Republicans have battled for several cycles over this Henderson and south Las Vegas-based seat. Susan Lee, an education advocate and the spouse of a wealthy casino executive, founded a homeless shelter and self-funded a failed bid for Congress for a different Nevada district in 2016. Now, despite a crowded field of several challengers, Lee is running in Nevada’s 3rd District with the support of DCCC and the backing of former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.
The simultaneous announcement of endorsements from the top elected officials in the party is a way to send a signal that the party has chosen its candidate.
The owner of a Las Vegas insurance agency announced Thursday that he is running for Congress.
Jack Love, 51, is the first Democrat to announce for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. Philanthropist and Democrat Susie Lee, who ran unsuccessfully for Nevada’s 4th district last year, is also considering entering the race. Four Republicans have filed to run for the seat.
Pledges to fight for the middle class
with common sense solutions and personal accountability.
Las Vegas, NV – Thursday, August 31st – Jack Love, a lifelong Nevadan and political newcomer, known for speaking his mind and his fighting spirit, declared his candidacy today seeking the Democratic nomination for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District.
His reason is simple. “For too long, our elected representatives have ignored the needs of their constituents. Instead, they do the bidding of the donor class and big business. I am not a professional politician; I will work hard in the interests of, and be accountable to, the people of my district.” said Love. In his official announcement on Facebook and Twitter, he emphasized the need to “tackle head-on comprehensive health care reform and the stark wealth and income inequalities in the US economy.”Read more
