A new question: I have seen references to “accepting” or “declining” a nomination: is this something a nom source sets out or requires from a candidate? None of DS’s letters form mom’s have requested he accept or decline their nomination? He will be thanking all three sources for their nomination for sure.
In some competitive districts, you are asked to accept or decline a nomination. This way if someone on the potential slate declines, it gives the nomination source the opportunity to extend the nom to the next person on the list.

I suspect the references to "accepting" and "declining" that you've heard are to appointments, not nominations. Appointees typically have until May 1st to accept/decline an appointment.
My DS was asked by Senator Kaine (VA) do accept or decline his nomination. He accepted, of course, because he does not yet have an LOA.
