Early voting in Nevada’s 2018 Primary begins today. Because Republicans have damaged themselves severely in attempting to create a Soviet-type government, some conservatives have shifted to the Democratic party in order to be elected. This makes the Nevada primary more critical than the General election, as the Democratic Primary nominee is likely to win.
Casinos and mining industries are heavy contributors in Nevada elections and an informed voter will note that any candidate that has a well-funded campaign is possibly being propped up by those special interests. In this Primary, there are several candidates that seem to have an unusual amount of money to spend.
Based on my research, here is who I’m voting for in the Nevada Democratic Primary for Federal and State offices, and why:
Governor of Nevada
MY VOTE: Christina ‘Chris G.’ Giunchigliani
Casinos and mining have managed to control the Governor’s race for at least the last twelve years. Jim Gibbons and Brian Sandoval have been noted to follow an agenda that has favored those industries over the needs of the citizens of Nevada. This year, the two candidates for Governor that seem to have the nod of casinos and mining are Republican Adam Laxalt and alleged Democrat Steve Sisolak. If Sisolak wins the Democratic primary, Nevada will end up being the stooge of those two industries.
The only plausible candidate is Christina ‘Chris G.’ Giunchigliani. She has a consistent record of Democratic ideals as opposed to Steve Sisolak who has suddenly become a champion of a few Democratic issues. Sisolak has a reputation of being arrogant, unintelligent, and Trump-like in his behavior. He is the ideal candidate that casino overlord Sheldon Adelson would want as his errand boy.
All other Democratic candidates lack the support to win in the General election.
MY VOTE: Jacky Rosen
Why not Danny Burleigh? Impotent campaign.
Why not David Drew Knight? He wants more vocational training in public schools. We don’t need to spend more public money to train workers for businesses. Businesses should train their own workers through internships where workers are paid to learn to do the job instead of taxpayers and workers paying for their own industry-specific training.
Why not Sujeet ‘Bobby’ Mahendra? Ignorance. Mahendra wants to reduce corporate and personal taxes in a State that doesn’t have corporate tax and income tax, but has one of the highest rates of violent crime in the U.S. and the worst education system in the U.S. Mahendra is a Soviet Republican running as a Democrat.
Why not Allen Rheinhart? Wants to join with Russia in a fight against fake Islamists? WTF?
Why not Jesse Sbaih? He would be my second choice, but he is inexperienced and would be a weak candidate against the incumbent Soviet Republican Dean Heller.
I have some issues with Jacky Rosen. One red flag is the award she received from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. That organization has devolved into an extreme right-wing organization, and any recognition by them is not good.
However, she is likely to defeat Heller and she is the best choice of the field.
U.S. House of Representatives District 2
MY VOTE: Rick Shephard
Why not Dr. Vance Alm? Weak campaign.
Why not Patrick Fogarty? I like his positions on the issues, but I don’t see him as a strong candidate in the General election.
Why not Jesse Douglas Hurley? Impotent campaign.
Why not Clint Koble? He would be my second choice because of his stance on issues and work with rural communities.
Why not Jack L. Schofield, Jr.? Impotent campaign.
Why Rick Shepherd? Shepherd is passionate about many issues. In everything I read, I couldn’t find any issue with which I significantly disagreed. We need a passionate Democrat to contrast the Good Ole Boy Republican Mark Amodei.
MY VOTE: Kate Marshall
Why not Laurie L. Hansen? Impotent campaign.
Why Kate Marshall? Experience, dedication to Nevada, and intelligence.
MY VOTE: Aaron Ford
Why not Stuart J. MacKie? Impotent campaign.
Why Aaron Ford? Only logical choice and has the experience for the job.
State Assembly District 24
MY VOTE: Sarah Peters
Why not Edward Coleman? I believe Sarah Peters demonstrates a stronger passion, which I feel is important in battling Republican bullying; however, Coleman seems to be qualified and a strong alternative.
Why not Deonne Contine? There are two issues I have with Deonne that concern me. First, she doesn’t have her children in a public school. I’m not criticizing the personal choice of education for her children, but we need an advocate for public schools and Brian Sandoval has demonstrated that when you don’t have your own children in public school it is easier to cut public school budgets.
My second issue is the funding of her campaign. She seems to have a lot of money to spend, which makes me concerned as to who is pulling the strings in her campaign.
Why not Tom Stewart? Again, the key for me is a passion to move forward and Stewart’s campaign seems a little generic to me.
Why Sarah Peters? I feel Peters has a desire to call out bad decisions and she seems highly intelligent in her assessment of key public issues.
