Clark County, home of Las Vegas, is Nevada's largest. Its Republican Party was recently taken over by Ron Paul acolytes. And the results are already hilarious:

Clark Country GOP billboard: Ronald Reagan -> Ron Paul! George Bush -> Mitt Romney?
(Las Vegas Sun)
That's not a caucus-era billboard. That has just gone up, and no, the George Bush reference is not meant to be flattering. In other words, the official Republican Party of the largest county of a key battleground state is, in effect, sabotaging its own nominee. Top Silver State political analyst Jon Ralston quips:
I swear, folks: The Republicans here are better than any act on the Strip. It is not even close.

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.
