No Surprise: Rory Reid Likely to Run for Governor

I'm listening to KNPR's "State of Nevada" right now. Today's special guest is Clark County Commissioner Rory Reid (D).

For the first few minutes, he and "State of Nevada" host Dave Berns were talking about various Clark County issues. And thankfully, Reid, Jr., declined to endorse a bailout of the boondoggle "Las Vegas Monorail" when asked about transit issues and instead endorsed a possible light rail line along the old Union Pacific right-of-way from Henderson to Downtown Las Vegas. He also explained his proposal for a citizen task force to determine what needs to be done to "fix Clark County government".

Oh yeah, and did I forget to mention that Rory Reid will most likely run for Governor? He didn't just say it, but he dropped enough hints that this is what he wants to do. He disputed the rumor that "two Reids on the same ballot won't help either one". He also said that change in Washington isn't enough, and how we now need to change Carson City.

So far, Reid's still mostly talking about Las Vegas/Clark County issues. I'll provide another update here if he provides some answers to questions on statewide issues. Oh yes, and I'll post an audio link as soon as it's up on the KNPR web site.
