The NV GOP establishment’s worst nightmare

Riddle me this Batman:

What if moderate Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval hand-picks and anoints an entire slate of moderate Gumby Republicans to run for the five other constitutional offices – lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer and controller – thereby locking up all the establishment special interest money.

That would likely scare and discourage a lot of credible, viable alternative CONSERVATIVE candidates from running…as it already has with the anointment of Mark Hutchison as Sandoval’s LG running mate.

But what if …

What if a team of experienced, qualified, viable and credible candidates came together to counter the hand-picked moderate Sandoval slate even though they wouldn’t have as much money as Sandoval …

And what if the Republican Party adopted a policy of pre-primary endorsements for the next election cycle …

Can you image the butt-kissing and promise-making the establishment slate would have to do with Central Committee members to avoid being embarrassed by not being endorsed by their own party?

Why you might even see Sandoval show up for next year’s Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in Clark County!

But what if …

What if the official Republican Party members on the Central Committee instead voted to endorse the conservative alternative slate over Sandoval’s moderate anointment slate?

Do you think such an official endorsement might affect the votes of a large number of Republican PRIMARY voters despite the conservative slate not having as much money as the establishment slate?

And do you think maybe that’s why the establishment is working so hard to kick the conservatives out of party leadership and instead install their own hand-picked puppets who oppose pre-primary party endorsements?

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Facts, not fear

At the end of this piece, I will list my sources, which are mostly the CDC. From the beginning of this “crisis,” we have been told that we need to listen to the experts, and that is what I have been doing. The CDC recommends using masks and wiping down surfaces, but they do not have clinical data to back this up, and they even contradict their own message in some cases.
