Sue Lowden, a former Nevada GOP chair and currently a candidate for Senate, could face an interesting obstacle in her quest for the party's nomination to go up against Democratic Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports -- Ron Paul supporters.
A new group called the Fair Nevada Elections PAC, run by nuclear science consultant and Paul-supporter Robert Holloway, contends that Lowden unfairly used her position to prevent Paul delegates from being chosen at the state convention last year. "Sue Lowden basically stole the election for John McCain," said Holloway, a very strong charge to say the least. "We need to elect people who have respect for law and order, and our electoral process."
Lowden spokesman Robert Uithoven fired back, saying that Lowden had in fact allowed Paul to speak at the state convention, and had promoted his appearances around the state. "I think some people want to get stuck reliving the 2008 election cycle," said Uithoven.
Lowden is running in a contested primary against Danny Tarkanian, a former UNLV basketball player.
