On the other hand, a story in the Las Vegas Sun today maintains that “With his no-new-tax pledge, Sandoval increasingly finds himself on a no-new-tax island with only a small cadre of conservatives.”
“Small cadre”? You gotta be kidding me. Brian Sandoval ran on a platform and a promise not to raise taxes and 382,350 Nevada voters voted for him, crushing his opponent 53-41 percent. Small cadre, my foot.
