Every day news reports come out across Nevada piping up about the "excited Republican base", and the "unexcited Democratic base" in regards to this year's early voting leading up to June 8 primary.
The only problem is, if you look at it logically, it's the Republicans who are in fact under-performing, in their turnout.
Why? I'm glad you asked.
The top two offices up for election in the primary, Governor and US Senator already have their Democratic candidates decided. The chance of anyone beating the Reids and zero. And everybody knows it.
However the Republicans, even with an incumbent in the governor's mansion, are duking it out with dozens of candidates and spending millions of dollars for both offices. The TV ads are wall-to-wall, and not a Democratic Candidate among'em.
So is the fact that the Republicans are out "turning out" the Democrats 4-3 in news worthy story?
From where I'm sitting the GOP candidates have currently spent about $135,000 per primary vote and the Democrats have spent $11,000.
Sounds to me like yet another massive NV GOP fail.
