A mayor may spoil the Democratic Governors Association’s plan according to an article published on Fox5Vegas.com. The Democratic Governors Association declared Nevada a “Top-Tier Pickup Opportunity” in 2010, hoping to unseat Republican Governor Jim Gibbons.
Clark County Commissioner and son of Senator Harry Ried, Rory Reid, is slated to be uncontested in his bid for the Democratic nomination for Governor. That still does not mean a Democrat will not run against him.
Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, a Democrat, is considering a run for Governor. According to the Fox5Vegas.com report Goodman has said, “he would prefer to strike out on his own as an independent candidate.” As for Republicans, there are a number of people running in their primary to unseat Governor Gibbons.
