    Dean Heller is running against Shelly Berkley[D} Harry Reid's[D] side kick....Dean Heller[R] was put in place after Senator Ensign quite. He has been doing a good job so far. This is an email I got from him


    Yesterday, I filed paperwork with the Nevada Secretary of State making me an official candidate for U.S. Senate. I wanted to take a moment to share with you why I believe the coming months will be so important for Nevada.

    Washington has saddled our nation with crippling debt. We've seen trillions spent on bailouts and ever-expanding federal bureaucracies. Government regulations are crushing our small businesses and killing job opportunities.

    We are at a crossroads. If we continue on our current path, we may reach a point where America is no longer the land of opportunity.

    This election is about our vision for the future of our country. This November, we're going to decide which path we will take as a nation. That's why the fight ahead is so critical.

    In the coming months, attacks will be leveled. Our opponentsdesperate to winwill make wild claims and stop at nothing to defeat us. Make no mistake, our resolve will be tested.

    We must stand strong.

    In order to restore prosperity to Nevada, we must end the policies that caused these problems in the first place. We can, and we must, reclaim the American entrepreneurial spirit that encourages small businesses to grow:

    Eliminate job-killing regulations
    Repeal ObamaCare
    Pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution
    End the bailout culture in Washington

    Growing up in Carson City, I watched as my dad built his auto-mechanic business from the ground up. He worked tirelessly to make sure our family had every opportunity to live the American Dream.

    Kathye, Nevada is our home, and this election is about the kind of place we want it to be. It's about the kind of future we want for our children and grandchildrenthe kind of state we're going to leave for generations to come.

    I will fight with everything I've got to change our course. Together, we can take back the future of our country and restore the American Dream for all Nevadans.

    Thank you for standing with me.

    Dean Heller

    P.S. This is a message we need all Nevadans to see. Can you take 30 seconds right now to share it with your friends? Forward this email to five friends and ask them to join you in this important fight.

    2012 political rally draws most candidates

    Posted on 20 April 2012.

    A pair of Nye County Commission district two candidates criticized incumbent Gary Hollis during a candidates meet and greet at the Maverick Saloon and Dance Hall Sunday.

    Hollis said his retirement from the Nevada Test Site allowed him the time and flexibility to work as a county commissioner the last two terms.

    Over the years, Ive dedicated myself to several issues, one of them is the Yucca Mountain project, not raising taxes and building up the county infrastructure and the commissioners chambers like we all enjoy, he said.

    Hollis said resuming the Yucca Mountain project would create 6,000 jobs. He said the Nye County multipurpose training facility on East Mesquite Avenue is the only training center of its kind in the state for emergency personnel.

    District 2 commissioner candidate Garren Hesketh, the past commander of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars post, said hes running to unseat Hollis.

    Its time to pull the rug out from under the old boys in this community. We need to get a handle on the spending. You and I cant spend the money we dont have in our check books. Its way out of hand, Hesketh said.

    Candidate Darryl Lackey urged his supporters to vote for Hesketh or Frank Carbone, to unseat Hollis. He criticized Holliss frequent trips to Washington, D.C.

    Lackey ran against Hollis in 2008, he said he took in $740 in campaign contributions by the time of the primary, while Hollis had $32,000, money Lackey claimed was coming from Corrections Corporation of America. He claimed there will be four prisons eventually built in Pahrump, one near Terribles Lakeside Casino.

    We have Blagg Road, people are inconvenienced because of driving around the roadblocks. My concern is raw sewage is going into our aquifer, the reason for that is once the water table is contaminated in Pahrump they will force you to pay for infrastructure, Lackey said.
    Carbone didnt mention Hollis specifically. Carbone said hed like to move county commissioners meetings to a time more convenient for the public. He wants to increase funding for animal control with better trained workers.

    I do want to make sure that the integrity gets back to the budgeting in this community, Carbone said.

    Among the district three candidates, Andrew Andy Alberti said, we have to stop shutting down companies that come here.

    Alberti said a county commissioner in 2002 wanted to close the Jackass Flats Airport in Amargosa Valley in favor of a solar plant that would create 10 and 20 jobs.

    If you support me I promise you I will work until my fingers are down to the bone to bring those jobs here, Alberti said.

    His opponent, Julie Hargis, said she has been spending a lot of time recently attending Nye County commissioner meetings.

    Im a business owner. Im a creative thinker and I think I can help with the problems, but you have to learn what the problems are before you can solve them, she said.

    Federal and state candidates, some not well known, took to the stage.

    The politicians are absolutely wrecking this country and other than Ron Paul no one has come up with any kind of a plan to balance the budget, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Steve Brown said. He said no one wants to talk about the $550 billion in interest alone on the national debt that will be required in 2017.

    Retirements are going to have to be cut. I would never ask my 19-year-old daughter to take a path I wouldnt take myself. If were going to push her retirement age, Im going to do it myself, from 65 years old to 68, Brown said.

    Brown criticized the plan to build a pipeline from White Pine and Lincoln counties to Las Vegas, criticized his Democratic opponent U.S. Rep. Shelley Berkley for supporting the Patriot Act and advocated relaxed drug laws.

    Kiran Hill, a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress, said he was a boxer at the University of Nevada, Reno, served 11 years in the Marines and just returned from Iraq. Hes upset with the Republican Party supporting increased taxes and spending, as well as voting for the Patriot Act.

    I think the housing bubble was caused by our federal government and its interference in the economy. I would like to cut regulations, reduce taxes and our prosperity will return to the growth it was in the past, Hill said.

    Republican congressional candidate Mike Dela Rosa said he was a Christian, a constitutionalist and a conservative.

    I want to protect our rights, our Constitution. Its the best written document in this whole world. We just have to follow it to a t. Right now our representatives are selling out our country and the Constitution, Dela Rosa said. Im debt free. Im running my own campaign and I dont want to be a traitor is all I can say. You sell out this country and youre a traitor.

    Republican congressional candidate Dan Schwartz said we have a government now that truly believes the motto we should live by is European socialism. It is contrary to what the framers intended and different from what the Republican party believes.

    While Democrats believe people should look to government for jobs and support, Schwartz said Republicans believe in individual initiative.
    We need to do something about foreclosures, which means we got to get the banks to take a haircut. We need to do something about cutting expenses, he said.

    State Senator and Congressional candidate Barbara Cegavske, R-Las Vegas, said she served in the Assembly and Senate. Cegavske said she refuses to take money from casinos.

    I have a voting record. I believe in smaller government and what I have done, I have voted against tax increases, all of them. I am endorsed by the NRA, with an A plus, Cegavske said. The first thing I will do is I will repeal Obamacare and I will make sure we have a balanced budget and I will support an amendment to make sure we have a budget that is balanced.

    Republican congressional candidate Kenneth Wegner boasted he lives in congressional district 4, unlike some of his opponents. A retired Gulf war veteran whose son is in Afghanistan, Wegner asked why the military continues to fight that war.

    I turned back more than $200,000 in lobbyist money. I refuse to take the dirty money because Im going to be in Congress to vote for you, Wegner said.

    In 1916, Pancho Villa invaded the United States from Mexico, killed eight Americans, our president sent 5,000 troops to chase him out of our country and all the way into Mexico. Yesterday 20 Americans were killed by illegal aliens and we do nothing to stop them, Wegner said. Lets bring troops home from Germany and Japan, place them on our borders and stop this invasion.

    State Senate candidate Harley Kulkin, a Democrat, attacked his opponent, Eureka County Republican and Assembly Minority Leader Pete Goicoechea for claiming the Nevada Legislature achieved significant progress, in a state that leads the nation in unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies. Kulkin pledged to vote against taxes that were supposed to sunset in the 2011 session.

    Mr. Goicoechea lives 350 miles from here. Do you think he really cares about Pahrump? Kulkin asked.

    Nevada District 36 assembly candidate James Oscarson also mentioned he was a local candidate for the job and 30-year Nevada resident.

    Were a rural lifestyle, we have to protect health care and we have to protect our economy. We have to make sure our taxes are appropriated properly and theyre being spent in the right places, Oscarson said.

    His opponent, Delmar Leatham of Logandale, said, Im fiscally conservative, smaller government, lower taxes and maybe just to end up my thoughts, I own a dog and Ive been happily married for 36 years and thats probably the best qualification I have is having a successful marriage.

    Another District 36 assembly candidate, Walt Grudzinski, of Pahrump, who worked for the U.S. Department of Defense for 33 years, complained about government red tape.

    A 10 page document states all the agencies and departments a mining operation has to clear and pay fees before they can put a shovel in the ground. It takes seven years to get that done. We need to cut some of that out, Grudzinski said.
