Nevada votes for none of the above

(CNN) - In a race like this, nobody wins. Actually, in a race like the primary for governor in Nevada on Tuesday night, if nobody wins, then the runner-up wins. That’s because of a nearly 40-year-old initiative in Nevada that lets voters select “none of these candidates” on the ballot.

The vote is in, and "none of these candidates" is the top vote getter in the Nevada Democratic governor's primary.

Reid sells desert home in tiny Searchlight to be closer to family in Las Vegas

Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his wife, Landra, announced Monday they sold their family home in the famously tiny desert mining town of Searchlight, Nevada, where the senator grew up and will move near Las Vegas.

Reid said they want to live closer to their four children and 16 grandchildren. He said it also will make it easier to run for a sixth term when he is up for re-election in 2016.

Update: Democrats eye February for 2016 kick-off

Washington (CNN) – The first votes cast in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination would take place in February 2016, according to a proposal that cleared a major hurdle Friday at a Democratic National Committee meeting here in the nation’s capital.

The proposed nominating calendar would have the Iowa caucuses take place on February 1, New Hampshire primary on February 9, Nevada caucuses on February 20 and the South Carolina primary on February 27. All other states would have to wait until March 1 to hold a caucus or primary and be required to do so no later than June 14.

Politicians denounce Bundy's racist remarks

Updated 9:29 p.m. ET 4/24/2014

(CNN) - What started out as a standoff over land rights may be turning into a controversy over race.

Racist comments from Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy - who earlier this month appeared to win a highly publicized standoff against federal authorities over his two-decade long illegal grazing of cattle on public land - are giving Democrats a new weapon to attack some top Republicans who earlier came to Bundy's defense.

The two men appeared Friday afternoon on KSNV’s “What’s Your Point?” question-and-answer show.

What made Nevada rancher fight the feds?

Washington (CNN) – When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government.

One protester from neighboring Utah, Stephen L. Dean, 45, called the Bureau of Land Management's actions "tyranny in government." And a banner at the protest site blared: "Has the West been won? Or has the fight just begun!"
