The Reids fall further behind in Nevada race

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)

Thank you for putting that smile on my face! I wonder if Fancy Nancy will pay a visit to the Reid household to tell them that they are going down for a good cause. :-D
