DeLong For Nevada Newsletter February 2024

DeLong For Nevada Newsletter

February 2024


Happy New Year to all! With the start of 2024, the newsletter is back.


I held another Saturday morning coffee at the Tahoe Natural Café, which is at the corner of Steamboat Parkway and Veterans Parkway. There was a great turnout and we had good discussions for over an hour. My next coffee will be January 27th at 9:00am at the same location. I will be sending a separate text announcement closer to the date. Hope to see you there. I looking forward to talking with more of you as we move into the 2024 campaign season.


In news from the district and as I discussed last September, I continue to hear from constituents about insurance companies not renewing their homeowner’s insurance. I am in discussions with the Nevada Division of Insurance and the Insurance Commissioner about this issue. The Division is aware of, and concerned about, the situation. It appears that this is a trend in a number of states that have experienced natural disasters. The communities most affected, based on calls to the Division are Incline Village, Glenbrook, Zephyr Cove, Stateline, and Galena Forest/Montreux/St. James Village. Currently, the Division sees this as an escalating concern and hopes to avert a crisis. The Division is still collecting additional data from the insurance company to assess the extent of the situation. The Division recommends that if you need to need homeowner’s insurance that you work through an insurance broker, particularly one that can write coverage from multiple companies. In the longer term, the state has a couple of options that have never been done in the state. These include a state insurance pool or backstop, similar to the federal flood insurance program. The other is having the state require coverage as a condition of doing business in the state. The risk with this approach is that the company or companies leave the state entirely. Another factor is the need to reduce the fuels in this communities. At some level, the work is under way and there needs to be coordination with the Nevada Division of Forestry, United States Forest Service, and the counties.


We are now about fives weeks away from the beginning of candidate filings and four months away from the state’s primary election in June. I appreciate everyone’s support in the last campaign and hope you are all willing to support me again. If you will put a sign in your yard, make calls, or walk neighborhoods, please let me know through the contact page on my website ( I will be delivering yard sign to those who signed up in mid-March.

As a reminder, the Nevada Republican Party will be holding the 2024 Presidential Caucus on February 8, 2024. The party has mailed to all registered Republicans an informational card. This card has information about the caucus and who is running, which includes former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, businessman and commentator Vivek Ramaswamy, and pastor and entrepreneur Ryan Binkley competing. On the informational card is a QR code that you can scan with your phone camera. It will direct you to the Nevada GOP website. Click on the link “find your First in the West Caucus Location Here” and you will be directed to listing of the caucus locations, by county. Column B lists the Caucus locations in that county with the address in the following columns. Column G list the precincts, by number, that are at each caucus location. As an example, Line 125 of the list shows that Hunsberger Elementary School in Washoe County is a caucus location and precincts 2022,2037,2038,2043, 2060,2062,2073,8114, 8115, 8200, 8203, 8204, 8205, 8206, 8208, 8216, 8226, 8233, 8235, 8236, 8237, 8238, 8240, 8271, 8294, and 2021 are at that location. As you can see, there are a number of precincts at each caucus location. You will need to know your precinct number. Your precinct number can be found on your voter registration card from the Registrar of Votes. For those in Washoe County, you can look it up on the Registrar of Voters website using your last name and date of birth.

The caucus is an in-person only event (no absentee voting) and is scheduled to start at 5:00pm. Did not forget your identification, because you will need it to sign in and get your ballot. You can stay for the whole meeting, or cast your secret paper ballot and go. The key point with the caucus is that Nevada’s 26 delegates for the Republican nomination will awarded though the caucus only.
