Koble the right choice to unseat Amodei: Mulligan

Op-Ed by Dave Mulligan  -  Published 11:47 a.m. PT June 7, 2018

After due diligence and candidate research, my choice to replace him [Mark Amodei] is Clint Koble, who’s currently challenging five other candidates in the Democratic primary. Koble was appointed by President Barack Obama and served eight years as director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture here in Nevada. In that vital role, he worked with farmers, ranchers, Indian tribes and rural businesses, helping them get through drought and difficult times.

“Issues around land use and conservation and environmentalism turned out to be much more complicated than the simple boxes we try to put those in,” he said.

For this reason, Koble said he is most prepared to run a competitive general election campaign. Koble, who grew up in rural North Dakota and has worked in rural Nevada for a decade, said that he has a good understanding of the land and water issues that affect rural Nevada.

“I was once a farmer,” he said. “I own a gun. I understand rural communities.”

In addition to working as the state director for the farm agency, Koble touted his work helping rural Nevada companies through the Nevada Small Business Development Center. Last week, Koble earned a big endorsement from the American Federation of Government Employees.

Koble, who served at the farm agency under President Barack Obama, said he too has been frustrated with the Trump administration’s actions. He cited the Republican tax bill, which he called “unfair,” and actions to weaken protections for public lands and the environment.

Walking The Precincts In Reno  ~  Article by Sheila Leslie in the - 5/31/2018

"For U.S. House District 2, there are six candidates running for the chance to oppose incumbent Mark Amodei, assuming perennial candidate Sharron Angle doesn’t surge past him. That’s unlikely this year as her appeal to the Republican base seems to have waned considerably. My ballot will be marked for Clint Koble, although he has an uphill battle in a district that has never been represented by a Democrat. It includes much of rural red Nevada, whose citizens are a reliable Republican majority."

Too many Republicans refuse to vote for a Democrat due to several misconceptions, including the lies that Democrats want to confiscate everyone's guns and Democrats don't understand the problems of "real" Americans. Clint Koble is proof that these beliefs are false. He knows the problems faced by Northern Nevadans, he has already been working hard to solve these problems, and he will be an informed and bold representative for us in Washington, D.C. He deserves a chance.

Clint Koble spoke to Elko Democrats this week in his bid for U.S. House of Representatives. On Monday, Koble told the intimate crowd at Duncan Little Creek Gallery about his childhood in a small farming town, and his work as a rural business adviser with the Nevada Small Business Development Center, securing $250 million in low-interest loans for farmers. In August 2009 President Obama appointed Koble to state executive director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency.

“Rural Nevada is part of my blood,” Koble said. “I’ve worked in rural Nevada 12 years. I connect with rural Nevadans; I am rural Nevada.”

He, like most Nevadans, takes issues on a case by case basis, and supports policies that are in the best interest of Nevadans. It is that kind of open-minded, thoughtful approach that would be a welcome change from the ideological division of Donald Trump’s Washington.

One of the first issues Clint studied as a candidate for Congress was health care. After hearing the stories of the Nevadans who have been harmed by Mark Amodei’s vote for Trumpcare, Clint endorsed Medicare for All as he announced his campaign earlier this month.

Mark Amodei can be defeated, and if Clint has enough resources, Mark Amodei will be defeated.
