Democrat Rory Reid, son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has fallen further behind Republican Brian Sandoval in Nevada's gubernatorial race, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released today.
Reid trailed Sandoval, a former Nevada attorney general, by 12 points in a Rasmussen survey last month. Now, he trails by 18 points. The March 3 survey showed Sandoval ahead 53% to 35%. Not only that, but Reid now trails North Las Vegas Mayor Mike Montandon, 42% to 37%. Reid had a four-point edge over Montandon in February.
Sandoval is considered the Republican frontrunner in a race that includes incumbent GOP Gov. Jim Gibbons. Reid remains ahead of Gibbons, 44% to 36%, which is virtually unchanged from a month ago.
The same survey showed Reid's father fell further behind two of his Republican challengers -- Sue Lowden and Danny Tarkanian -- both of whom crossed the 50% threshold and now hold double-digit leads over the Democratic Senate leader.
Those results were released Friday. (SOURCE)
