Top staffers at the Nevada Democratic Party resigned en masse on Saturday, hours after supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won election to control most positions on the committee’s board.

Clark County Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer won election to head the state party in an upset victory over Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom. Whitmer’s slate won two vice chair positions and a party secretary position as well.

Whitmer had support from the Nevada chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. She had led the Nevada delegation to the 2020 Democratic convention as a Sanders supporter.
