Ryan Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy who famously engaged in an armed stand-off with federal agents attempting to seize and sell his assets in order pay grazing fees, announced he is entering the open Governor’s race as an Independent candidate. Mr. Bundy is no threat to become a major candidate, but any votes he takes away from the eventual Republican nominee, most likely Attorney General Adam Laxalt, could be damaging in what is projected to be a close campaign.
Mr. Laxalt faces state Treasurer Dan Schwartz in the Republican primary. The top Democrats appear to be a pair of Clark County Commissioners, Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani.
