Harry Reid isnt on Nevadas ballot this year, but he may as well be.
The shrewd Senate majority leader is putting the strength of his formidable political machine behind a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor whose fate could have major implications for Reids own three-decade congressional career. The race is rapidly becoming a proxy war between Reid and popular Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who is viewed by both parties as the toughest potential challenger to Reid in 2016.
If a Democrat were to win the lieutenant governors race, its widely believed that Sandoval wouldnt challenge Reid, since it would mean turning over the governorship to a Democrat if Sandoval won.
But that calculation changes if a Republican captures the lieutenant governors seat in November.
Sandoval is on the ballot this fall and expected to easily win reelection. If he does, the Hispanic Republican will come under enormous pressure from the GOP to take on Reid especially with a Republican lieutenant governor to succeed him. For that reason, both parties are preparing for the most expensive race for lieutenant governor Nevada has ever experienced.
Its one of the biggest races in the country right now, GOP Sen. Dean Heller said of the usually low-profile statewide race. The web of this can be far greater than just the lieutenant governors race.

Harry Reid is a horrible human being. After he loses his majority in the Senate this next November, he wont even be the minority leader because Schumer will kick him to the curb. After that, he just may be too old and senile to even run for reelection in 2016.
Perhaps he can get a job standing on a street corner yelling at “those damn kids!”
Is it illegal to call this effeminate little puke stain of a man out on the carpet for a good ol’e fashioned fist fight...I mean sometimes a man just needs his arse kicked to gain a whole new perspective on life. Probably a more protected species than the American Bald Eagle...never mind.
I believe he was a boxer at one point in his miserable existence. Arguably, I think if the truth were available to us it would show that Reid is the most corrupt man to ever hold that office.
As with many life-long elected officials, I suspect his ambition is to some day go direct from the Capitol Building to the mortuary. At age 74, he could have 2 decades left, those Mormons have pretty good longevity.
Wait a second now... we can agree that this POS is effeminate, and he is small, I'll give you that... and he certainly is a puke, and most definitely a stain... BUT, most definitely NOT a... umm..... errr.... what was that other thing you referred to him as?
Harry Reid is a criminal who should be frog marched to Leavenworth.
I do not like Harry Reid, but politics is a team sport and he is just playing the game. We need to recognize that and throw whatever support we can into this election as stage 1 of taking it to dirty Harry.
Be careful what you wish for with the “effeminate little puke stain of a man.” After all he was a boxer. Sarc.
He would be following in the foul, fetid footsteps of Fat Drunk Ted Kennedy and Bobby “Kleagle” Byrd ...
Christie engaged in similar machinations in choosing the date for the special election to replace Lautenberg and benefitted himself at the expense of New Jersey and the Republican party. These type of moves are common in both parties. Reid is despicable though.
Harry & Pelosi were trained by the mob.
And Boehner and McConnell were trained at a country club.
You can see the difference in results.
I agree, he’s just playing good political chess. We shouldn’t condemn him for it, but rather lament the dearth of politicians on our side capable and willing of doing the same.
Amodei, Heck, and Dean Heller support amnesty. Hutchison supports driving cards for illegals which half of them fail.
Why would Republicans turn out? These guys look desperate to turn the state blue.
Sen. Dean Heller, one of 14 Republicans to vote for comprehensive immigration reform in the U.S. Senate, predicted Wednesday in Reno that immigration reform would pass the U.S. House of Representatives if the issue gets a final vote on the House floor.
Were everything going according to plan, Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev., would have introduced his immigration bill by now.
The second-term congressman began working in earnest almost six months ago on the draft legislation to put immigrants unauthorized to be in the United States on a pathway to citizenship provided they complete a course of post-secondary study or military service.
