Opinion: Rory Reid bites the hand that feeds Brian Sandoval

Date:

SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010

Brian Sandoval’s campaign responded to Rory Reid’s new campaign ad last week by reiterating Reid’s point. In a pathetic political response, Sandoval’s campaign made the argument that it’s totally fine Sandoval was the sole sponsor of a 1997 banking deregulation bill because banking lobbyists wrote it.

Yes, that argument was actually made by the Sandoval camp last week.

The campaign admits in a press release that lobbyists wrote AB 360 and asked Sandoval to carry the bill through the legislative process. That was the point of a Reid ad.

“Brian Sandoval has been talking about how a high-powered network of lobbyists and insiders asked him to run for governor for more than a year,” said Mike Trask, spokesman for Rory 2010. “But it’s truly amazing that his defense to deregulating banks has been to say that bankers wrote the bill he carried.”

A new Web video shows just how deep Brian Sandoval’s connection with banks, lobbyists and special interests runs.

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 his campaign or to download his plans, visit Rory2010.com.
