'None of the Above' Wins Dem Primary for Governor in Nevada
by Debra Heine 12 Jun 2014 post a comment
"None of the Above" wins Nevada...

Gov. Brian Sandoval has easily defeated four challengers in Nevada's Republican gubernatorial primary.
An upset last night in the Democrat primary for governor of Nevada was almost as stunning as the Brat win in VA-7.

"None of the Above" won with 29.96% of the vote. Nevada was the first state to institute a “none of the above” line to its ballot in 1975, as a way for voters to protest weak, unqualified candidates.

Senator Harry Reid, who runs the Democrat party in Nevada with an iron fist, told reporters earlier this year, that the candidate to run against the popular Republican Governor Brian Sandoval, would be "a respectable Democrat and someone that people know."

“I’ve had a number of conversations, and we will fill every one of our spots,” Reid said.

“We are going to be competitive in all of the state offices –– from controller up to governor,” Reid said.

Reid would give no hints on who the new Democratic gubernatorial candidate will be, even if he lived in Northern or Southern Nevada.

“I’m sure that it will be a respectable candidate, someone that people know,” Reid said about a potential party-backed Democrat running for governor.

“You will find out,” he said. “It would be wrong (for me to say). Others should make the announcement and not me.”

We found out, all right.

Second place went to Robert Goodman, a retired state economic development commissioner, who got 24.9% of the vote. Since "none of the above" can't win under state law, virtual unknown, Goodman will be the nominee.
Too bad it was not for Harry Reid's seat!

Sandoval has always been a shoe-in for re-election.

Truth is, that idiot Harry Reid is concentrating on the election for Lieutenant Governor to make sure a Democrat wins that position.

Dingy Harry is so afraid Sandoval will run against him in 2016 that he wants to make sure if that DOES happen that a Democrat will end up being Governor
or he doesn't think Sandoval will challenge him if there is a Democrat as Lt. Governor.
