One Week Later: The Good, The Bad, & The Challenge

Yay, we won!

No, we lost!

Huh? What?

That's how I felt Wednesday morning. We lost a few good legislators. And we lost Dina Titus...

But we won Harry Reid. And we kept control of the Legislature.

Hey, we won some and we lost some. So what can we interpret from last Tuesday's results? Basically, we still have a hell of a lot of work to do in this state.

Without a doubt, Nevada voters appreciate sanity. And they appreciate someone who works as hard and fights for working families as much as Harry Reid. Hey, he got over 50% when hardly any of the DC pundits even expected him to win!

However, I'm still scratching my head as to what voters were thinking when they were picking state legislators... And Governor, for that matter. What did Brian Sandoval offer other than empty platitudes? And once the Legislature is done with the infighting over who's in charge of what, what can we expect to happen?

Without a doubt, there are plenty of challenges lying ahead for us. And there are some opportunities. I'll be talking more about them in the coming week. And I hope we can talk some more at Roots Camp on Saturday! (Hint: You'll want to join us.) ;-)
