Gametime: Nevada and South Carolina (R only)

Please join in the Valley of the Shadow Annual Fundraiser. We are raising $7,700. Please hit the Tip Jar here to contribute. Thank you.

Welcome back to the Political News Network! Here is a round-up of yesterday''s caucuses' and Primary.

First, moving East to West, starting in South Carolina where the Republicans had their Primary.

Here are the results. Senator McCain made up for his 2000 loss and had the network to build a victory with. Huckabee and Romney followed behind. Romney is pursuing a strategy of coming in win, place or show. Romney is accumulating delegates, state by state. It might upshot the Convention.

Now, on to Nevada: Here are the results.

First, let's tackle the GOP. As mentioned above, Romney came in first, followed by a mile with Paul and McCain. Outside of Las Vegas is a large Mormon population; That would be a factor. Also, Nevada is still a "Western" state and still believes in the Frontier mentality. Hence, Paul.

Now the Democrats. In the prologue, the Culinary Union of Las Vegas endorsed Senator Obama; The Las Vegas Teachers Union endorsed Senator Clinton. The latter gave a lawsuit regarding Caucusing in the major Strip Hotels. The teachers (and by proxy, the Clintons), lost.

The Clinton won the Caucuses', then Senator Obama and finally, Senator Edwards.

But there is an Epilogue. According to this diarist on the Daily Kos (no Republican ally), there were shenanigans by the Clinton Campaign. Immediately thereafter, President Bill Clinton accused the Obama campaign of cheating, yet no proof was offered. And the reaction in the comments by the Democrats in the article, shows the remarks are not taken as truth.

The campaign continues; For more information on the election, visit Jason at Washington Interns Gone Bad. All forgiven. Until next time, this is PNN.


  1. I'm just glad McCain won. I think with win in Florida, he can start putting it away.

    Hope you're well.

  2. In the aftermath of the Nevada Caucuses I would urge the Democrats and with South Carolina coming hard on its heels. I would urge the candidates to remember the thoughts of Asa Philip Randolph on justice and democracy

    1.Justice is never given; it is exacted and the struggle must be continuous for freedom is never a final fact, but a continuing evolving process to higher and higher levels of human, social, economic, political and religious relationship.

    2. A community is democratic only when the humblest and weakest person can enjoy the highest civil, economic, and social rights that the biggest and most powerful possess.
