Freshman Assemblyman Jim Wheelers favorite thing to do at the Legislature: Argue with liberals.
From where he hails the rural ranching town of Gardnerville there arent many of those for the cowboy hat-wearing, retired businessman with a deep, gravely voice to argue with.
Its so much fun, the exuberant lawmaker said from his fourth-floor office at the Legislative Building last week. Where else can you argue with a liberal every day? You argue with one, you can turn around and, look! Theres another!
This session, Wheeler appears to be one of a dwindling breed in the Nevada Legislature an unabashed, no-taxes, no-gun-control, no-immigration-reform conservative.
Where’s the link?
I get a “newsletter” from Assemblyman Wheeler frequently and have met and talked with him. Hard over pro 2nd Amendment guy as well. And he’s a fellow smoker.
Gardnerville is only a 20 minute drive from Carson City, and during the '08 election I saw a lot of Obama yard signs and bumper stickers around there.
oops. my bad.
Potential Reid-busting candidate for 2016?
I don’t believe he has any aspirations of going to d.c. Although he would tell it like it is. At least for a little while until they corrupt him. Not supported by the vegas unions that’s for sure.
