ELECTION DISASTER ARCHITECT LOOKING FOR AN ENCORE?
Nevada U.S. Sen. Dean
Heller has been mentioned as the possible next head of the National Republican
Senatorial Committee (NRSC) which will be in charge of recruiting and funding
candidates for the 2016 election cycle.
It should be noted that the last Nevadan to head that
committee was former Sen. John “Pants on
the Ground” Ensign – who proceeded to lose a multitude of seats in 2008,
thus making Harry Reid the Majority
To be fair, though, Ensign was just the front man.The “brains” behind that magnificent disaster
was Nevada political consultant Mike
Slanker – the guy phoning in Gov. Brian
Sandoval’s non-race campaign.
Slanker is also a consultant to Heller.

According to my source who looked into it, of the 64 voter
registration applications turned in by the party from January 3 thru September
14th, “three of them changed from Republican to Democrat, two
changed from Republican to IAP and one changed from Republican to Libertarian.”
So one out of every ten people the CCRP helped register to
vote were people they actually helped LEAVE the party!Heckuva job, Dave.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“(Nevada Gov. Brian) Sandoval has long been the subject of
vice-presidential chatter, but he’s pro-choice and has approved or supported
some tax increases, tainting him in the eyes of many conservative Republicans,
said Chuck Muth, a former executive director of the Nevada GOP.” – Steve
Friess, Al Jazeera America, 10/1/14
“Its’ going to be much more difficult to get Democrats to
the polls even with the Reid machine just because this is the most boring election
in the history of Nevada.” – Reporter Ray Hagar, Al Jazeera America,
