    AMERICA: It's time to remind the GOP that we will NOT EVER forget the last disastrous 8 years that the Bush Administration took us on, in order to drive the economy over the cliff!!! DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO TAKE OVER THE COUNTRY AGAIN! JUST SAY NO TO THE PARTY OF NO!

    Brian Sandoval won't win.

    Rory Reid is Harry Reid's son. They are VERY popular here in NV and they are Mormon. 65% of Nevada is Mormon....

    To put simply, Brian Sandoval will lose. Anyone who says otherwise does not know anything about Nevadan's and how POPULAR the Reid family is.
