NV GOP Leader: 2014 Great For Party Since Minorities, Youth Won't Vote

Two of the main targets of Republican voter suppression are minorities and youth. In an implicit acknowledgment of the rationale for such practices, Nevada Assembly Republican Leader Pat Hickey (right) was gleeful about his party's prospects in 2014. He told a conservative radio host,"We have some real opportunities in 2014. This is a great year in an off-presidential election. No, seemingly no Democrat on the top of the ticket against Sandoval. No Harry Reid. Probably where we had a million voters turn out in 2012, we’ll have like 700,000. A lot of minorities, a lot of younger people will not turn out in an non-presidential year. It’s a great year for Republicans." Listen:

Yeah, in TExas the Republicans lose if Hispanics voted more and in the South the same with blacks. THere are few on the right that want to leave Texas or the South for OK, UT, MT and so forth that less minorities, so all they can do is make certain minorities don't vote.
