Once you look close, politics at the state level can get pretty crazy. And South Carolina doesn’t get to have all the fun. Nevada’s a pretty wild place too.
Dawn Gibbons is the first lady of the state as the soon-to-be-ex-wife of lame-duck Gov. Jim Gibbons (R), who got beat in the Republican primary last Tuesday. She has a radio show now. And despite being a Republican, she’s supporting Sen. Harry Reid (D). She also served in the state legislature with Reid’s opponent Sharron Angle and actually went head to head with Angle in the 2006 Republican primary for the state’s 2nd Congressional district. (They both lost to another candidate, Dean Heller.) And she talked with our Christina Bellantoni about the fight Reid has on his hands.
