'None of the Above' Wins Dem Primary for Governor in Nevada
Breitbart News ^ | June 12, 2014 | Debra Heine

An upset last night in the Democrat primary for governor of Nevada was almost as stunning as the Brat win in VA-7.

"None of the Above" won with 29.96% of the vote. Nevada was the first state to institute a “none of the above” line to its ballot in 1975, as a way for voters to protest weak, unqualified candidates.

I’d take “none of the above” before I’d accept Reid.

OK, Nevada Freepers. Tell us what this means. Is the Democrat Party able to fill the nomination line with some committee assignment? Or does ‘None of the Above’ automatically take up their line in the General Election?

“Since “none of the above” can’t win under state law, virtual unknown, Goodman will be the nominee.”

What is the use of having a “none of the above” selection if you give the nominee to the next candidate? None of the above is a rejection of ALL of them therefore none of them should win.

Yup.

If “None of the above” receives 50 % plus one vote, than none of the names on the ballot can be placed on the next ballot, IMHO, of course.

“none of the above” means a smoky back room deal from the Ruling Class. Although now the smoke isn’t from cigars....

How funny!

Guess that means no opponent for the Republican candidate then.

If "None of the above" wins an election for a real post, that post should be vacant for on election cycle.
What a wonderful way to downsize the government.
Too bad it does not downsize any departments with it.

“A vote to ABSTAIN is a great idea!”

It would be if the office could actually go unfilled. The nomination is going to the runner-up, the “none of the above” is simply a feel good protest vote. If a candidate remembers to vote for himself and the entire electorate besides the candidate votes “none of the above” the greedy little statist politician is still getting into office.

That’s really not too far removed from communist “elections”, we just bother throwing another party in the mix to give people the illusion of choice and representation.

Much better if the polity could actually vote to leave an office unfilled. We might actually see decent voter turnouts if the public could vote “Leave me the **** alone!”.

According to the article, "none of the above" cannot "win". Thus, the 2nd place finisher -- an unknown named Robert Goodman will be the nominee.

None of These Candidates cannot win under State law. So “Second to None” gets to go on to the general election.

Second place went to Robert Goodman, a retired state economic development commissioner, who got 24.9% of the vote. Since "none of the above" can't win under state law, virtual unknown, Goodman will be the nominee.

Has Goodman started crowing about his mandate yet?

Well it was! I learned right here on FR that all votes not cast for the consensus approved RINO, or no vote at all, magically translates and is counted for Obama.

And I know it’s true because to this very day a cadre of GOPe supporters scream it and call myself and others bad names for our heresy of not voting for their closet case liberals.

But there will still be a Demwit on the ballot? IOW, this is amusing, but meaningless.
