  •  Yucca Mtn isnt as big of a deal in Reno... (2+ / 0-)

    Much bigger of a deal in Las Vegas.

    So yea, northern Nevada (well, outside clark county) is more red, and clark county makes up for it. Making nothern Nevada more blue will help.

    And its good they made you learn how to pronounce Nevada properly. Nothing will identify someone as an out of towner quicker than how they pronounce Nevada.

    Also, when it comes to energy, northern Nevada also has lots of geothermal power at its disposal, so highlight Obama's efforts on the renewable energy front too.

    •  Thanks for the info! (0+ / 0-)

      I know lots of people reading this are heading to Reno in the next coming weeks.

    •  Yucca mountain (0+ / 0-)

      I agree, no one I know in Reno cares one way or another about Yucca Mountain.

      That said, do you realize that when you talk about voters in Nevada, you need to look at Clark County? More than 70% of the population lives in or near Las Vegas, not Reno. Many people in Las Vegas do care about Yucca Mountain. So it's not much of a stretch to say that Nevada voters are concerned.
