Clinton endorses, records robocall for Chris Giunchigliani for Nevada governor

  Clinton endorses, records robocall for Chris Giunchigliani for Nevada governor Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, endorsed Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani for Nevada governor on Sunday in a robocall posted by the candidate's Twitter account. The robocall is not Clinton's first -- she recorded endorsements for Stacey Abrams' gubernatorial campaign in Georgia and J.B. Pritzker's gubernatorial campaign in Illinois -- but it does represent a to-date rare foray into politics for Clinton after the 2016 election. Clinton, despite being the Democratic standard bearer less than two years ago, has largely sat out the 2018 midterms.

A Democratic Candidate Pepper Sprayed Himself In A Campaign Video To Talk About Gun Reform?

“I’ve had enough of Democrats and Republicans talking past each other on gun control as kids, schools and communities pay the price in blood.” www.carbonated.tv/news/ democratic - candidate -levi-tillemann- pepper - spray -campaign- gun -reform.

“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” Tilleman says in the video. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”

“Pepper spray doesn’t cost much and it can be safely stored in a break glass in case of emergency cabinet. But it’s powerful and won’t accidentally kill a kid,” he continued. “Trust me, this will stop anybody in their tracks.”

The Democrat then proceeded to close his eyes and began spraying the pepper spray in his face. He’s later seen trying to wash off his face by dunking his head into water and spraying himself with a hose. “It’s incredibly painful, now I can’t see anything,” he said. “Wow, that’s intense.”

PELOSI DEFENDS HOYER AFTER AUDIOTAPE SUGGESTS INTERFERENCE IN HOUSE RACE

This isn’t the first time Tillemann caught the attention. He secretly recorded Democratic House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer back in December, who urged him to drop out of the primary race to give way to Jason Crow, who was backed by the party’s establishment.

“Yeah, I’m for Crow,” Hoyer was reportedly recorded saying at the December meeting in a Denver hotel. “I am for Crow because a judgment was made very early on. I didn’t participate in the decision.”

He added: “But it was clear that it was our policy and our hope that, early on, try to come to an agreement on a candidate that we thought could win the general, and to give that candidate all the help we could give them.”

Tillemann’s stunt is unlikely to earn him the party’s nomination as Crow remains the leading candidate in the primary race.

Iowa primary may not decide Democratic nominee for governor .
Iowa Democrats will have plenty of options as they choose an opponent to Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds, but it's unclear whether the top vote-getter in the primary will actually be on the November ballot. That's because Iowa law requires a primary candidate to secure 35 percent of the vote to win. Unless a candidate clears that threshold, the Democratic nomination will be decided at a state convention later in June.Six Democrats will be listed on the primary ballot, but only five candidates are seeking the nomination following state Sen. Nate Boulton's decision to drop out after a report of sexual misconduct allegations.
