(Reno, NV)  —  A large crowd is expected to attend this afternoon’s funeral for former state Senator Bill Raggio.  Last night, Governor Brian Sandoval and other officials attended a rosary for the Republican lawmaker, who died February 23rd from a respiratory illness during a vacation to Australia.  The 85-year-old Raggio’s funeral will be held at Reno’s St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church.  Raggio served a record 38 years in the state Senate, many of them as majority leader, before retiring in 2011.
