Nevada Democrats tap Iowa operatives to run caucus
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Nevada Democratic Party announced Tuesday that it is turning to Iowa Democratic veterans to run the western battleground state's 2008 presidential caucus.

Jean Hessburg -- the executive director of the Iowa Democratic Party during the 2002 and 2004 elections -- will oversee Nevada's Democrats only caucus in early 2007. Jayson Sime, who was the Iowa Democrat's field and canvass director in 2004, is slated to assist Hessburg.

The Nevada Democratic presidential caucus holds the No. 2 spot on the 2008 calendar, falling five days after Iowa's and four days before New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary.
