Opinion: Brian Sandoval hiding again


Brian Sandoval ran back into hiding on the day after Rory Reid fired the first shot and went on the offensive during the first joint appearance by candidates for governor.

Today Sandoval made a feeble case to the Associated Press that a three-question exchange–sparked by Reid on Wednesday–amounted to a debate, one of four he claims his campaign had agreed to. That was a truly bizarre comment.

In truth, Reid has committed to 12 debates across Nevada. As of yesterday, Sandoval has only publicly committed to one–an Aug. 29 debate at the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy in Las Vegas.

It’s just another example of Sandoval’s desperate attempts to avoid public scrutiny of his agenda to continue to cut hundreds of millions of dollars from 7- and 8-year-olds’ classrooms and lay off one in five Nevada teachers.

“It’s ridiculous to claim that three questions in front of closed audience of 200 is in any way the same as a full, stand-up debate in front of the voters of Nevada,” said Mike Trask, press secretary for Rory 2010. “Rory has agreed to 12 debates across the state, because Nevadans deserve to know where the candidates stand on the issues. Brian Sandoval is just crying because he finally had to answer some tough questions yesterday.”

Reid is the only candidate for governor to offer solutions for today and a plan for Nevada’s future success–supporting strong schools for a stronger economy. For more information about hiss campaign or to download his plans, visit Rory2010.com.
