Next gubernatorial elections in Nevada seems very interesting for democrats. Jim Gibbons republican governor since 2007 seems will run again for governor but now he have low approval rates. Negative rates. That make his reelection not be sure.

The indictment of his Lieutenant governor B Kroliki can damage too J Gibbons governor and let republicans in Nevada more weak. They have J Ensign senator and D Heller congressman, but the door for Nevada became blue state seems open.

In last elections of November, democratic party take important steps for became the first politic party in Nevada. Next step is defeat incumbent governor and advance in state offices with strong candidates.

This is the list of possible candidates in Nevada:

  1. Robert Joseph Miller: IL NV 1945 Governor of Nevada 89-99. Lieutenant Governor of NV 87-89.
  1. Rochelle "Shelley" Berkley: NY NV 1951 USHRep 99- .
  1. Alice Constandina Titus: GA NV 1950 USHRep 09- . Lost for Governor 06.
  1. Ross Miller: NV 1976? NV Secretary of State 07- .
  1. Catherine Cortez Masto: NV 196? NV Attorney General 07- .
  1. Kate Marshall: NV 1959 NV State Treasurer 07- .
  1. Kimberly Wallin: NV 19?? NV State Controller 07- .

Former governor B Miller is included because he is the most important democrat in Nevada without office and with age of can run. I think he have an outstanding race for senate against J Ensing, but that can be in 2012.

Not is long list of candidates but is a list with future. I glad see womans and young people in this list.

I think maybe any of these candidates can defeat current governor of Nevada. I hope see Nevada more blue after 2010 elections.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
