It seems like it's all but a given, according to the papers, Sandoval will be re-elected next year with little or no competition.

That's because the Nevada economy is doing so well, even though we still have the highest unemployment rate in the country. Of course, Sandoval will say: But! But! The unemployment rate is improving. As if anyone takes official unemployment rates seriously anymore!!!

He was all smiles recently, when Nevada's business climate was rated #1 in the country! Well, what's new, Brian!!! We've have had the best business climate for decades now, and where are the jobs!!!!

The speculation is, he'll win his 2nd term, and midway through, he'll run for Senator Reid's Senate seat! Which wouldn't surprise me!!!

What do you think? A little spooked he hasn't already garnered some serious contenders? Me? I find it downright spooky!!! But then, living in this state will always be rather spooky to me!!!

Sounds like you're a bit disappointed with his popularity!!!

He will easily win re-election as we Nevadans know he is doing everything possible to improve life here in Nevada IN SPITE OF OBAMA and his efforts to destroy the country.

Our one hope is that more Republicans will be elected to the state legislature to help the governor fight Dingy Harry and his minions.

I have to think about that tijlover. It can't get worse and perhaps he can continue to overcome Obumbler's efforts to destroy Nevada tourism.

Can you site examples of what improvements the Governor has made, and what did President Obama do to destroy tourism in Nevada? Otherwise, your posts just seem to lose credibility.
Honestly, I'd like to see Sandoval win to maintain a balance of power, so that one party doesn't have absolute control over the other. This balance typically assures a compromise of both ideals which is better. As opposed to extremists one sided political sheeple ideals.

Who will the democrats run against him? Rory Reed again? The wicked witch, er, Shelly Berkeley? Nah, she's gonna try for Harry's seat in the event he retires. Diana Taxus, er Titus will keep her House seat. The only one who I think may have a chance would be Steven Horsford. I have to admit he's suprised me. But I think he'd be better off in congress for another term or two.

What does this have to do with Sandoval's "accomplishments"??

Maybe try being less obsessed with Obama. It's kind of sad.

Governor Sandoval has a good record of keeping the Democrat State Assembly from running wild and is about the most conciliatory but sticking to his beliefs governors we've had in a long time.

He will easily win re-election as there is nobody anywhere with the clout or popularity to beat him.

It has nothing to do with Obozo.

Increasingly, it looks like Clark County Chairman, Steve Sisolak, may run against Sandoval. Now he could present a challenge to Sandoval, as he's a Democrat in name only, but behaves like a fiscal Republican.

And, to his advantage, he has Christ Christie style about him, shooting from the hip, which many potential voters find refreshing.

I emailed him last month, already, urging him to run!
