IE group to file vs. Brager

A group calling itself the Nevada Values PAC plans to file Tuesday to support ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider against Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager in the June primary.

The PAC will be primarily funded by labor groups, including SEIU and the AFL-CIO, said Annette Magnus of ProgressNow Nevada who is overseeing the effort.

Magnus said as a state senator, Schneider was very supportive of progressive issues such as women's health and development at Red Rock. And, she added, Brager has portrayed herself as a progressive, "which couldn't be further from the truth," Magnus said.

RJ columnist Steve Sebelius wrote about that issue Monday.

Magnus would not say how much money the group will have but said a mail program is in the works.
