During an interview on Hill.TV's "Rising," Chuck Rocha told hosts Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti to "pay attention" to the Nevada caucuses once the New Hampshire primary concludes Tuesday.

His remark came after he was pressed earlier in the interview to drop hints about the campaign's strength in Nevada. There have been no public polls in the state for weeks.

"It's going to be interesting," said Rocha, who added that the Sanders campaign was seeing good support from the Latino community in Nevada, a strong presence in the state's caucuses.

Nevada's caucuses are scheduled for Feb. 22, though voters can cast their first and second alignment preferences days earlier as well.
