In so many other parts of the country, 2010 was a bloodbath for Democrats. Yet here in Nevada, it wasn't so bad. In fact, all four incumbent Democratic statewide officers won reelection. State Controller Kim Wallin was one of them. And she really put things into perspective in her speech to Clark County Democrats on Saturday.
2010 was a critical election for Nevada's future... And so far, 2012 is looking to be at least just as critical (if not even more so). Wallin made sure the crowd got that.
While the general election isn't officially underway yet here in Nevada, it's at least happening at the top of the ticket across the country. We got some more reminders of that today. And while Nevada now looks good for President Obama, Republicans won't be going down without a fight. And of course, there will be plenty of action all the way up and down the ticket here.
If you think 2010 was wild, get ready for the real battle royale this year.
