In the News, Part VI

5 races to watch in Nevada state, federal elections

Ray Hagar

Among the dozens of offices up for election in 2012 are five that you need to watch this fall.


Because experts say they could prove to be some of the most contentious and interesting in [the US] and Northern Nevada.

U.S. Senate
Republican incumbent Dean Heller vs. Democrat Shelley Berkley

This race means a lot to each candidate but also to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

A victory by Berkley, Nevada’s longtime representative in the 1st U.S. House District, could give Reid the Democratic senator he needs to tip the scales in favor of a Democratic majority, preserving Reid’s power as majority leader.

Heller, from Carson City, is popular in the rurals, riding his horse in many hometown parades and subscribing to a conservative philosophy.

Heller was appointed last year to the U.S. Senate seat after John Ensign resigned.

The loser of this race would be hard-pressed to remain in politics...

U.S. SENATE:Shelley Berkley (Democrat), Sherry Brooks (Republican), Steve Brown (D), Richard Charles (R), Barry Ellsworth (D), Eddie Hamilton (R), Dean Heller (R), Michael Leslie (D), Carlo Poliak (R), Nancy Price (D), David Lory VanderBeek (Independent American Party), Louis Macias (D)
