Governor Skipping State Republican Convention
(Las Vegas, NV) — Nevada’s Republican Party is gathering for its convention, but the state’s top elected GOP official won’t be there.
The event begins tomorrow at the South Point hotel. Governor Brian Sandoval is skipping it, according to a report in the “Review-Journal”.
Republican national committeewoman Diane Orrock calls it “shameful” the governor won’t take part, but says there are no plans to campaign against him.
Sandoval faces no strong opponent in either party as he runs for a second term.
He has also rejected the state GOP’s move to endorse candidates before the primary season. It’s on the agenda, along with the party’s platform.
A poll will also be conducted on who Nevada Republicans favor as the party’s presidential candidate in 2016.
