(Las Vegas, NV) — Mitt Romney has widened his lead among Nevada Republicans. A new poll by Magellan Strategies gives the former Massachusetts governor 38% support, compared to 26% for former pizza chain executive Herman Cain. Texas Governor Rick Perry is down to fifth place with five-percent, trailing Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, despite an endorsement from Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval. Romney won the Silver State’s GOP caucus in 2008.
