Four-term Rep. Mark Amodei’s (R-Carson City) name often comes up in Nevada statewide speculation, suggesting he is looking for opportunities beyond continued tenure in the House. Though late last week saying he would not run for the open state Attorney General’s position next year – incumbent Adam Laxalt (R) has the inside track to the open gubernatorial nomination – he didn’t deny that outright retirement is a possibility. The 2nd District is Nevada’s northern seat, anchored in the city of Reno. It is safe for Rep. Amodei and should play as safely Republican in an open seat situation.
