My research for this relied heavily on the endorsements offered by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Las Vegas Sun, both of which I studied in detail. I also checked out some other organizations, such as Nevada Concerned Citizens‘ endorsements, my own comments from the primaries, and, of course, I googled each candidate and reviewed their web sites. Here’s what I came up with.
Ballot questions will be handled in another post.
I won’t repeat everything I’ve already said here many times about this race, but suffice it to say…
Vote for: Sharron Angle
CONGRESS, DISTRICT 1
Kenneth Wegner has not campaigned aggressively, nor has the party supported him sufficiently. I love his signs, but that’s hardly enough to be taken seriously. At the same time, Democratic incumbent Shelley Berkley is strong. I saw a billboard for her last week that simply said something like, “Honesty. Integrity. Hard Work.” Know what? I can’t deny that. She’s clean of scandals and has a good reputation.
Basically, this race is pointless. She’ll win by about a zillion percent.
Still, Berkley voted for the stimulus and ObamaCare. So…
Vote for: Kenneth Wegner
Incidentally, even though it’s not in my district, I hope people for Joe Heck instead of Dina Titus for the other Congressional seat up for grabs this year. Titus is just as liberal as Berkley, and has run a foul, dishonest campaign against Heck. Dr. Heck, on the other hand, is a consistently conservative leader with the dedication we need to help our state.
Meanwhile, Brian Sandoval actually is ahead of Rory Reid by about a zillion points, so this one’s pointless, too!
By the way, if all of the conservatives who oppose illegal immigration are doing it because we hate Hispanics so much, why are we giving one a landslide victory in the election for our governor? Hmmm, maybe the left’s convenient assumptions about us aren’t accurate after all…
Vote for: Brian Sandoval
