The DNC is taking a page out of Michael Bloomberg's playbook and asking party officials in Nevada to sign nondisclosure agreements regarding the Nevada Caucuses. The move comes on the heels of the Iowa Caucuses where the state Democratic Party bungled the final results. 

CNN reports that Democratic officials in Iowa are being asked to sign nondisclosure agreements in an effort to get in front of any bad press that might follow another incompetently managed caucus system. 

In Iowa, the Democrats had a hard time counting the results -- they still are. It’s so bad that Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price resigned amid the ongoing disaster. 

“As chair of this party, I am deeply sorry for what happened and bear the responsibility for any failures on behalf of the Iowa Democratic Party,” Price wrote in a letter to the party’s state central committee. 

The same issues that plagued Iowa earlier this month are now feared to resurface in the Silver State. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who has also been called upon to resign, would not commit to releasing the results of the caucuses on Saturday night after the election, according to the Associated Press. Problems with a new early-voting system and a new digital tool being rolled out on an election night, where high voter turnout is anticipated, has forecasters seeing signs of trouble looming in Nevada. 

As the president said, “The Democrats want to run your health care, but they can’t even run a caucus in Iowa.” He may need to add Nevada to the list.
