Sandoval, Hutchison Move Forward
With Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval cruising into an early-June primary election victory in Nevada's statewide election, he’ll face democratic candidate Bob Goodman this November. Goodman is a former economic development official under the late Gov. Mike O’Callaghan.

Sandoval is supported by the Nevada Credit Union League.

Additionally, League-supported republican candidate State Senator Mark Hutchison won his primary election and will continue his campaign for lieutenant governor into November. This was the most-watched statewide race, as Hutchison faced a challenger from the right, former State Senator Sue Lowden. Both candidates attacked each other on a wide range of policy issues.

Hutchison will face popular Assemblywomen Lucy Flores, a democrat from Las Vegas.

“This will likely be the hottest race in November,” said Andrea Svoboda, manager of political advocacy for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues. “Both political parties will fight to win the lieutenant governor spot, as well as a step closer to the governor's office when Sandoval faces his term limit in 2018.”
