Who Are Nevada Democrats Running At The Top Of The Ticket?
Twelve months ago Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., was certain that Democrats would have a well-recognized candidate to run at the top of the ticket this November. After the primaries, it became clear that no one was willing to be the sacrificial lamb in what everyone thinks will be a walkover for Gov. Brian Sandoval. The winner of the Democratic gubernatorial primary was "None of these candidates" and the runner-up was Robert Goodman.
Now, Goodman has left Nevada and other candidates report that he has "resigned" the nomination. So what happens now and what can Democrats do to prevent this becoming more a fiasco than it apparently is?
