De La Fuente’s ‘Open Letter’ About Nevada Recount

ORLANDO, FL, USA, December 8, 2016 / -- ORLANDO, Florida, December 8, 2016 – Former independent presidential candidate “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente, who also was the presidential nominee of the Reform Party and the American Delta Party, sent the following letter to Nevada’s Secretary of State with respect to the recently concluded limited recount he requested and funded in that state.

Dear Secretary Cegavske:

I wanted to personally thank you and your election personnel for facilitating the limited recount that I requested of Nevada’s 2016 presidential election. The recount was conducted expeditiously and without taxpayer expense.

With regard to the latter, I appreciate the fact that Nevada offers candidates reasonable access to a recount unlike other venues such as Wisconsin. Pernicious fees should never be used to obstruct an interest in confirming the integrity of our electoral process. Nevada was able to provide a partial recount that afforded my team the opportunity to witness your state’s recount procedures.

I want to thank your election personnel for the courtesies they extended to my observers and for their dedication to operating fair elections. They clearly take their roles seriously, and I have no doubt they conduct Nevada’s elections in a manner in which they believe preserves the sanctity of the vote.

Recounts should be conducted for a similar purpose: to preserve the sanctity of the vote. They should not be performed for self-aggrandizement or to affect a partisan result.

I happen to be a registered Democrat. I have attempted to test the recount procedure in states which were won by both the Democrat and Republican presidential candidates. My interest is not to change or in any way interfere with the results; rather it is to examine whether proper protocols are in place to assure that each vote has been counted toward the candidate for whom it was cast.

Over the next several days, I will be reviewing the findings of Recount Now; the organization that provided election integrity experts to observe the recount for us. As you are probably aware, Recount Now is singularly dedicated to the attainment of transparent and secure elections

I am sure we will confirm the relative strengths of your state’s recount practices. Correspondingly, if we identify any opportunities to further guarantee the validity of your residents’ votes, we will share those recommendations as well.

Again, thank you for helping us to perform this vital exercise to protect the interests of Nevada’s voters.


“Rocky” De La Fuente

De La Fuente said, “I wanted to thank the State of Nevada for at least allowing a candidate to have practical access to a recount and to thank its election workers who otherwise have a ‘thankless’ job.” He continued, “Too many people are missing the importance of recounts within the realm of exposing the pluses and minuses of how we validate our elections. The better our validation processes become, the more difficult it will be to tamper with our elections.”

De La Fuente added, “We will be assessing the steps taken by the State of Nevada in its recount process and evaluating how well it protects the sanctity of the vote. If we can advance that cause, we will.”



“Rocky” Roque De La Fuente is living proof that the American Dream can be achieved by those who are inspired to pursue it. He has an amazing record of overcoming obstacles and achieving success. From being licensed by the FAA to fly single engine planes at the age of 20 to owning 28 automobile dealerships and becoming Chairman of the National Dealers Council for the third largest automobile manufacturer in the world by the age of 28, Rocky is in a league by himself. He also created a banking network in 1982 to help address an economic crisis in Mexico and established impressive real estate holdings throughout the United States while generating thousands of new jobs along the way. Rocky holds a bachelor’s degree in Physics and Mathematics (Magna Cum Laude), and in 2016, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by UNESCO for his work as an international business ambassador. Rocky continues to exude a passion for his country and for those who seek the opportunity to fulfill their version of the American Dream.
